Edvard Munch: Works on Paper
This superb book is dedicated to Edvard Munch’s vast and fascinating oeuvre of works on paper. Featured in beautiful color reproductions are key images related to well-known prints and drawings, as well as lesser known works, such as childhood drawings and caricatures. Essays by critically acclaimed art historians examine, among other things, the various techniques that Munch used for his prints and drawings; charming examples of childhood drawings featuring his family and their daily life; his interaction with contemporary artists and the intellectual milieu of the so-called “Kristiania Bohemia” and Oslo’s night life; and the impact of his volatile romantic relationship with Tulla Larsen. In sum, this invaluable book reveals many new insights into the life and work of one of the world’s best-known yet enigmatic artists.
Magne Bruteig and Ute Kuhlemann Falck are both senior curators in the prints and drawings department at the Munch Museum.
