Munch By Himself
STOCKHOLM  •  Moderna Museet  •  Ongoing
Self-portraits run like a red thread through the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch´s (1863-1944) oeuvre. They reflect Munch's artistic development, from his first tentative steps from radical naturalism to the expressionistic symbolism of the 1890s. These works chronicle the successive stages of his life, from youth to old age. Over the years, Munch discovered intense metaphors and pictorial formulas for his inner experiences.

The exhibition features paintings, graphic works and drawings, along with sketches and studies from all phases of Munch's oeuvre. Moreover, Moderna Museet shows several of his symbolist paintings that especially highlight his artist role, such as The Blossom of Pain, and Golgatha. Despair, his study for The Scream, will also be shown.

The works in the exhibition date from the 1880s to 1944, the year Munch died. The emphasis, however, is on works from the 1900s.
