This exploration of Edvard Munch's influence on his Austrian and German contemporaries presents a unique perspective on the Norwegian artist whose work The Scream has become an emblem of modern anxieties. Even as Munch emerged at a time of visual beauty and design, his own painting depicted darker themes of expulsion, guilt, and human fragility. His art fused together the bright colors of his predecessors yet intensified the emotional elements, initiating a completely new way of crafting pictures. Despite the copious literature on Munch's life and art, there have been no previous inquiries into his effects on German and Austrian counterparts—until now. Compiled by esteemed area experts, this authoritative and splendidly decorated book investigates Munch's effect on the Austrian and German Expressionists of his era, including his pioneering contributions to printmaking.

About the Artist, Edvard Munch

Edvard Munch (1863–1944) was born in Løten, Norway, and studied design and art in Oslo. In May of 1885 he traveled to Paris on a scholarship, and after the deaths of his sister and father the following year, he began to spend most of his time in France. His painting first achieved fame with an 1892 exhibition in Berlin, which also led directly to his influence upon the German Expressionists. Despite struggles with alcohol and mental health, Munch lived to the age of 80.
