Product description


'...[an] absorbing account of the social and intellectual forces...that Munch struggled against - or solicited - in order to create'. -- Alan Jenkins, Times Literary Supplement, November 18, 2005

'...a magisterial portrait of a deeply troubled man. It is both humorous and tragic...' -- The Sunday Times, 25th September 2005

'...a significant addition to the literature on the Norwegian artist...It is among Prideaux's achievements...' -- Christopher Riopelle, Apollo Magazine, February 2006

'...anyone who wants to know how and why [Munch] painted as he did should read this book.' -- The Independent on Sunday, 18th September 2005

'...excellent...highly detailed...fascinating' -- Martin Bailey, The Art Newspaper, February 2006

' is packed with information and event. Few biographies of artists can be described as gripping. This often is.' -- The Sunday Telegraph, 25th September 2005

'Already a successful novelist, [Prideaux] combines a scholar's precision with a writer's insight.' -- The Brighton Argus, 29th/30th October 2005

'[A] marvellously detailed study of Munch's extraordinary life...' -- The Birmingham Post, 17th December 2005

'[Prideaux's] biography [has] a kind of sympathetic authority... [It] fills out the man behind the paintings.' -- Patricia Railing, The Art Book, February 2006

This fine biography succeeds in explaining why this deeply
troubled man, in many ways forgotten, was and is an important and profound
artist. -- Oxford Times, June 1, 2007
