Edvard Munch

Loading...
Edvard Munch portrays the private and personal struggles accompanying the Norwegian painter's artistic innovations amidst the social upheavals of the late nineteenth century. Munch, with his personal fixations on a childhood filled with "illness, insanity, and death," a traumatic affair with a married woman, and quarrels with his family, pursues his artistic experimentation under a constant assault from the ghosts of the past. Bohemian Munch--maligned and embraced by a culture that was quick to kick non-conformists out, in order to gloat over their shenanigans--paid a high price for his genius, in a life painfully disturbed by passion, jealousy, and the relentless repression of a moralistic, bourgeois state.
