About The Artist
Edvard Munch (1863-1944)
Edvard Munch was a Norwegian Symbolist painter printmaker and an important forerunner of the Expressionist movement in art. The Scream is Munch's most popular painting in which he displayed the themes of life love fear death and melancholy as he did in several of his works. Munch's psychologically and emotionally themed paintings were a major influence on German Expressionism in the early 20th century.
Edvard Munch was born into a family that was plagued with poor health; both his mother and sister died before he was fifteen years old. Munch showed an early gift for drawing but received little formal training. An important influence on his development as an artist was the Christiana Boheme a circle of writers and artists in modern-day Oslo. The members of this circle believed in free love and generally opposed what they perceived to be the narrow-mindedness of the bourgeois class.
Munch did not associate long with the Christiana natural aesthetic choosing to assimilate himself with the French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists in Paris where he cavorted with painters Paul Gauguin and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
Munch's paintings of women portrayed them as either frail innocent suffers or as the cause of great longing jealousy and despair. These paintings such as Madonna show Munch's turbulent relationship with love. Although Munch paintings are stylistically post-impressionist his subject matter is primarily symbolic. Munch said he carefully created his paintings to create a tense atmosphere that depicted a state of mind rather than an external reality. The resulting paintings were full of emotion and energy.
