Edvard Munch, pronounced (muŋk) who was born on 12th December 1863 in Ådalsbruk (Løten in Norway) and died on 23rd January 1944 (at age 80) in Oslo, is an expressionist painter and engraver
Edvard Munch can, in retrospect, be considered after the Berlin exhibition of 1892, the pioneer of Expressionism in the modern painting. Very early, he was known for his affiliations with a new artistic era in Germany and Central Europe. His work and his importance are now recognized in Europe and around the world.
Munch's best-known works are those created in the early 1890s, including ‘The Scream.’ His work became famous in Nordic countries only after 1909, thanks to the large retrospective exhibition organized by his friend Jappe Nilssen and by Jens Thiis, director of the National Gallery in Oslo. The painter was absent, he was momentarily convalescing in a private clinic in Copenhagen, having been hospitalised because of a mental break down, victim of serious behavioural, physical, and nervous disorders, in 1908.
His favourite techniques are mainly painting and tempera on cardboard. He is also a pioneer of art accessible to all, an art unveiled, shown and not hidden, in the streets and public spaces, in various places of nature.
Edvard Munch was always captivated by the landscapes of the shores of the Oslo Fjord, which he discovered, in his youth, on country paths, then, as a young artist, from the sea thanks to Hans Jaeger, a captain chartering small excursion and leisure boats along the coast. Some of these regions have become emblematic places in his life.
