Product Description

Edvard Munch's ruthless self-revelation through his art mirrors not only the particular nature of the artist but the style of a whole age; what was private was to be revealed in the full gaze of the public. A central concept in Munch's art thus became THE FRIEZE OF LIFE, a series of deeply personal pictures conveying an existential message. Munch captured the painful experiences of Love | Angst | Death with his pen long before he painted them. It is this relationship between thepainter's own "poetic" texts and the motif's in THE FRIEZE OF LIFE that Arne Eggum set out to focus on in this work, and by juxtaposing them he has added an important dimension to our understanding of Edvard Munch's art.

A super book on Edvard Munch - enthralling, with 363 beautiful illustrations! Highly recommended!

This book tells an interesting tale - both of Munch himself, his art, his own ruthless self-revelation, and the style of an era. Fascinating!
