Edvard Munch : the complete graphic works by Gerd Woll( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a contribution to the literature on Edvard Munch and his activities as a printmaker. It is an invaluable reference work for print experts and Munch enthusiasts alike. Munch's graphic works have fascinated people all over the world for more than a hundred years. He himself arranged a number of exhibitions of his prints and was represented in many print rooms and important private collections in Europe before World War II. When he died in 1944, Munch bequeathed his vast collection of some 18,000 prints to the City of Oslo. In 1963, the Munch-museet opened its doors to the public, and since the bequest has shown Munch's prints in numerous exhibitions. The author's extensive research and the enormous attention to detail in the individual entries will make this the standard reference work for many years to come."--Jacket
Munch : at the Munch Museum, Oslo by Arne Eggum( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and Norwegian and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is Norway's most important painter and graphic artist and the only one to exercise a decisive influence on European art." "This beautifully illustrated book features the most important works from the Munch Museum, Oslo: a celebration of the artist's oeuvre. The museum's collection is housed in a specially commissioned building, designed by the architects Gunnar Fougner and Einar Myklebust, which opened in 1963." "The many facets of Munch's art - which expanded beyond famous oil paintings, such as The Scream, Madonna and Anxiety, to thousands of graphic prints and drawings - are brought vividly to life through three principal essays: Edvard Munch: His Life, by Marit Lande; Edvard Munch as a Painter, by Arne Eggum and Edvard Munch's Graphic Works, by Gerd Woll."--Jacket
Edvard Munch : a genius of printmaking by Edvard Munch( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Love, pain, and death; passion, loneliness, and sorrow - the entire oeuvre of Edvard Munch (1863-1944) revolves around the fundamental experiences of human existence. Munch is regarded as one of the trailblazers of the Expressionist currents that informed European painting in the early twentieth century. His prints were not byproducts but a central element of his oeuvre, from the first etchings in 1894 to the lithographs he made just before his death. Among the masterpieces included in this representative volume of images and texts are graphic versions of Munch's world-famous subjects in the form of large-format color lithographs, etchings, woodcuts, hand-colored prints, or experimental prints on colored paper. Munch's graphic works, in which he achieved a persuasive condensation of his major Symbolist allegories, captivate the viewer with their subtle color palettes and their expressive sense of reduction.

HISTORY OF ART / ART & DESIGN STYLES. A comprehensive and enlightening overview of this extraordinary painter researched by the foremost experts in the fieldOver 150 colour illustrations of his most important worksFeatures the lithographs and woodcuts as well as the paintingsEdvard Munch is Norway's most important painter and graphic artist and the only one to exercise a decisive influence on European art. A forerunner of Expressionism, his works were influenced by an early life tortured by sickness, insanity, rejection and guilt and he worked through his neuroses in his paintings. With the greatest consistency throughout his life, Munch created a life's work which would not only enable the deepest problems of the century to live on into our time, but also says something about human existence, which couldn't be put into words. Right up to the last days of his life, Munch shed light on anxiety as an existential problem

Edvard Munch : Alpha & Omega( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Während eines achtmonatigen Aufenthalts in dem Sanatorium von Dr. Daniel Jacobsen in Kopenhagen verwandelt Munch sein Krankenzimmer in ein Atelier und entwickelt einen neuen extrovertierteren und expressiveren Stil. In dieser Zeit entsteht das Meisterwerk Alpha und Omega, eine grafische Mappe bestehend aus 22 lithographischen Blättern und einem gedruckten Prosagedicht. Zusammen ergeben sie eine bildnerische Parabel, die in Episoden die Geschichte von Alpha und Omega, den ersten Menschen auf einer Insel, erzählt. Munchs heftige Besessenheit vom Kampf der Geschlechter steigert sich in dieser Inselphantasie ins Groteske und kann als ironische Abrechnung mit der libertären Sexualmoral der Christiania-Bohème gelten. Persönliche Widersacher werden als Mischwesen karikiert und am Ende tötet Alpha Omega und wird selbst von Menschen in Tiergestalt gefressen. 0Exhibition: Museum Kunst der Westküste, Alkersum, Germany (9.6.2013-12.1.2014)
