Edward Munch lived for another half-century after painting “The Scream,” his Symbolic masterwork, which is perhaps the most widely recognized piece of fin-de-siecle European art.
Before 1893, Munch had been a restless artist, embracing and then rejecting many of the modernist currents of the day. After 1893, he settled into a distinctive style that rejected most of the innovative Modernism of the early 20th century. With his use of bold brushstrokes, vivid color, and vibrant imagery. Munch produced a powerful oeuvre reflective both of his inner turmoil and his keen appreciation of natural forces.
It is unfortunate that the exhibition that generated this volume-the first major exhibition of Munch’s work in the U.S. in 25 years, and the first ever to focus on this late period-was limited only to Atlanta and there for only three months. But we should be grateful to Yale for publishing such a handsome volume, and to Ms. Prelinger for writing such a sensitive text, thereby providing those of us unable to attend this rare event an opportunity to see what we have missed.
