This major loan exhibition from the Munch Museum, Oslo, is dedicated to prints by Edvard Munch – Norway’s greatest painter.
Edvard Munch: Prints is dedicated to prints by Edvard Munch (1863-1944) and is the most extensive Munch print exhibition in the UK for more than 35 years. Featuring 40 of the artist’s finest prints from throughout Munch’s career, the exhibition has been selected to illustrate his development as a graphic artist as well as the important themes of his art.
The show will include the lithograph version of the iconic The Scream, which is one of the most famous pictures in the world. Other works include the controversial lithograph Madonna, the striking Self-portrait lithograph and the atmospheric woodcut Melancholy.
This is the most substantial display of Munch prints to be exhibited in the UK since 1973, and is accompanied by a fully-illustrated publication and a lively events programme.
