Abstract:

Edvard Munch portrays the private and personal struggles accompanying the Norwegian painter's artistic innovations amidst the social upheavals of the late nineteenth century. Munch, with his personal fixations on a childhood filled with "illness, insanity, and death," a traumatic affair with a married woman, and quarrels with his family, pursues his artistic experimentation under a constant assault from the ghosts of the past. Bohemian Munch--maligned and embraced by a culture that was quick to kick non-conformists out, in order to gloat over their shenanigans--paid a high price for his genius, in a life painfully disturbed by passion, jealousy, and the relentless repression of a moralistic, bourgeois state.
