Edvard Munch (1886 - 1944)

Edvard Munch (1886 - 1944)

Norwegian born artist is regarded as a pioneer of the Expressionist Movement. Edvard's mother died of tuberculosis when he was 5 years old and his sister also died of the same illness at the age of 15. Munch himself suffered illness throughout his life. Of his 5 siblings, only one ever married, dying a few months after the wedding. It is not surprising therefore that Munch's work often reflect the grief and death and illness.

The Scream is often described as the first expressionist picture and is an extreme example of Munch's soul paintings. 1n 1907 Munch settled in Berlin and the following year he suffered a complete nervous breakdown. In 1927 he exhibited over 223 works retrospective exhibitions at the National Galleries in Berlin and Oslo.

In 1933 a broken blood vessel in his right eye caused almost total blindness. Munch died in 1944 shortly after his 80th birthday. A prolific artist, Munch left 1,000 paintings, 15,400 prints, 4,500 drawings and watercolors as well as sculptures, to the City of Oslo.
