Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0870704559, Hardcover)

In an exploration of modern existential experience unparalleled in the history of art, Edvard Munch, the internationally renowned Norwegian painter, printmaker and draftsman, sought to translate personal trauma into universal terms and in the process to comprehend the fundamental components of human existence: birth, love and death. Inspired by personal experience, as well as by the literary and philosophical culture of his time, Munch radically reconceived the given world as the product of his imagination. This book explores Munch's unique artistic achievement in all its richness and diversity, surveying his career in its entire developmental range from 1880 to 1944. The comprehensive volume features a lavish selection of color plates, an introduction by Kynaston McShine, Chief Curator at Large at The Museum of Modern Art, and essays by Patricia Berman, Reinhold Heller, Elizabeth Prelinger, and Tina Yarborough, as well as in-depth documentation of Munch's art and career. It will accompany the most extensive exhibition of Munch's art in America in three decades.

"This volume, which accompanies a major exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, provides a comprehensive overview of Munch's work. Its color plates illustrate the full range of his art, including his many extraordinary self-portraits; intensely emotional motifs such as The Kiss and Puberty, Anxiety and Melancholy, The Sick Child and The Dance of Life; one of the modern era's most famous and quintessential images, The Scream; and the mutable series called the Frieze of Life, in which Munch attempted to chronicle "the modern life of the soul.""--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
