"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 : between the clock and the bed by Edvard Munch( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This engaging book offers a fresh look at the exceptional works of Edvard Munch (1863-1944) by examining them in the light of his precarious mental state. Following a nervous breakdown in 1908, Munch underwent electroshock therapy, which prompted a marked change in his art work. The haunting Self-Portrait between the Clock and the Bed, finished one year before his death, represents a culmination of the themes of mortality, isolation, and anxiety that he explored repeatedly, and provides, in these pages, a perfect lens through which to view the artist's entire oeuvre. Informative essays consider Munch's position in the art world, his conception of self as a means of experimentation, and the psychological content of his paintings, while a previously unpublished foreword by the celebrated Norwegian novelist Karl Ove Knausgaard offers a new perspective on Munch's life and work. Featuring over 40 masterworks from throughout the painter's career, and an illustrated chronology that traces the progression of his emotional state and its influence on the images he created, this is an intimate, provocative study of an enigmatic artist and his remarkable legacy

Munch : Van Gogh by Edvard Munch( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work and artistic ambitions of Edvard Munch (1863-1944) and Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) show interesting parallels. They are known for their emotionally imbued paintings and drawings, their personal and innovative style and their tormented lives. Both strived to modernise art and developed expressive imagery to portray the universal emotions of human life. In 'Munch : Van Gogh', these similarities are focused on for the first time. The exhibition studies the essence of their art, their artistic ambitions, the development in their style and technique and the influences to which they were subjected. This shows why these artists are so often mentioned in one breath. With over one hundred art works including various iconic masterpieces and special artworks which are rarely loaned out ; the two artists are brought together on a large scale for the first time.

Edvard Munch : works on paper by Norway) Munch-museet (Oslo( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Yale University Press

Mapplethorpe + Munch by Robert Mapplethorpe( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This revelatory catalogue delves into the many affinities shared between two widely renowned and discussed artists, Robert Mapplethorpe (1946-1989) and Edvard Munch (1863-1944), whose intensely studied work has, until now, never been considered in relation to one another. Mapplethorpe + Munch brings to light how these two monumental figures curiously relate on an existential level, in how they deal with questions concerning sexuality, and in their way of utilizing self-portraiture as a means to explore issues of personal identity. Featuring essays that examine the thematic impulses behind the accompanying exhibition, this publication establishes a previously unexplored association between two equally contentious art figures, while working to impart alternative perspectives and new insight into their respective outputs. Although distinct in their legacies, Mapplethorpe and Munch remain remarkably intertwined. 0Exhibition: Munch Museum, Oslo, Norway (18.02-29.05.2016)
Vigeland + Munch : behind the myths by Vigeland + Munch( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and Norwegian and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time a major dual exhibition will be devoted to two giants in the history of Norwegian art, Edvard Munch and Gustav Vigeland. Their work, development and ambitions have many interesting traits in common, which will provide the public with an opportunity to discover new connections between the two artists. Edvard Munch (1863-1944) and Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943) worked during the same period. One primarily as a painter and printmaker, the other as a sculptor. With only a six-year difference in age, they were affiliated with the same circles and influenced by the same contemporary art movements. And for a period they both lived and worked - even in adjoining rooms - in Berlin. The connection between Munch and Vigeland has often been mentioned, yet has never been the subject of in-depth investigations. Many are of the opinion that the two were rivals. This book wishes to clarify the connections between them by presenting their artistic careers side by side, from the time they began studying at The Royal College of Design in Kristiania, to the time they became well-established artists at Ekely and Frogner respectively. A red thread running through the book is their common development with regard to choice of motifs. For example when they followed the contemporary trends and depicted angst-filled characters, ambiguous love motifs or ominous Judgement Day motifs. The works of a young and not yet famous Vigeland are highlighted here, from a time when his sculptures had a more dramatic content and were smaller in format than the ones we know from the Vigeland Park. An interesting similarity from a later period can be found in the artists' works representing monumental renderings of entangled piles of human bodies, such as Munch's painting The Human Mountain and Vigeland's sculpture The Monolith.

Emma & Edvard looking sideways : loneliness and the cinematic by Mieke Bal( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study explores a tripartite relationship between the art of Edvard Munch, the mid-nineteenth-century novel Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, and the video work Madame B based on the novel, by Michelle Williams Gamaker and myself. These three partners explain, illuminate, and hence "frame" one another. It is a study of Munch's paintings, framed by Flaubert's novel, in turn framed by our videos. But the itinerary can be reversed, and we can see Munch's work framing Flaubert's novel as well as our videos. In short, this is a framing of images by means of grouping them. As the author of this book, I am also the "curator" of these images, because I group them according to my view, for which the artists are not responsible."--Page 9
Jorn + Munch by Asger Jorn( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als jonge kunstenaar behoorde Asger Jorn (1914-1973) tot de avant-garde en de surrealistische beweging in het Kopenhagen van de jaren 1930. Maar pas toen hij in de veertig was, ontdekte Jorn zijn ware artistieke expressievorm. Meteen na de wapenstilstand in 1945 reisde de toen dertigjarige Jorn naar Oslo om er een grote retrospectieve tentoonstelling van de werken van Edvard Munch in de Nationale Galerie te bezoeken. Munch stond op het hoogtepunt van zijn internationale faam toen hij in 1944 overleed, maar net als vandaag waren het zijn werken uit de jaren 1890 waarvoor hij het bekendst was. Op de tentoonstelling in de Nationale Galerie waren echter vooral werken uit Munchs latere periode te zien, met andere woorden uit de periode van na de eeuwwisseling. Jorn was al vertrouwd met de vroege kunst van Munch, maar diens latere werken verrasten en overweldigden hem. In de latere Munch ontdekte Jorn een schilder die een directe, spontane en intense expressievorm hanteerde die meteen in de smaak viel bij de jonge kunstenaar, met zijn achtergrond in de spontane schilderkunst van het surrealisme. De artistieke bevrijding die Jorn toen bij Munch vond, vormt het hoofdthema van deze publicatie.0Men mag zich nooit te snel aan simpele conclusies omtrent artistieke invloeden wagen. Toch trad een onmiskenbare verandering op in Jorns werken nadat hij Munchs kunst in de Nationale Galerie had aanschouwd. Jorn was met name geboeid door Munchs intense kleurgebruik en zijn directe gestuele aanpak in de werken van na de eeuwwisseling. Hij was tevens gefascineerd door de organische, gebogen lijnen die Munchs werken vanaf de jaren 1890 kenmerkten. Jorns visuele expressie en schildertrant veranderden ingrijpend in deze periode.
