Edvard Munch: The Modern Eye (Nicolas Cullinan)

Article by sam

Munch is best known for his iconic painting The Scream. However, his other paintings - as well as his prints and photographs - convey a similar intensity and are well worth a look. Munch often created many versions of the same composition. When seen collectively here, these multiples seem darker, more urgent, and more personal. Perhaps most unsettling are his depictions of the halo shape that he saw in later life as a result of a hemorrhage in his eye. The intensity and honesty of Munch’s body of work served to document the human condition in a unique and undeniably influential way.
