Edvard Munch was one of the foremost protagonists of modernism, and his paintings and graphic works number among the absolute highlights of turn-of-the-century art. This exhibition, featuring around 100 of the Norwegian artist’s most important works, will include icons of his art such as The Scream, Madonna, The Kiss, and Melancholy, as well as works exemplifying his experimental approaches to printed graphics.

The artist’s life and work, full of existential crises and breaks yet guided by the utmost consistency, illustrate his intense preoccupation with loneliness, love, and death.
As stated above, this presentation will place an additional focus on the artist’s printed graphic works. What Dürer was to the Renaissance and Rembrandt was to the Baroque is embodied by Edvard Munch for the modern era: his lithographs, etchings, and woodcuts represent the unequivocal apex of 20th-century printed graphics.

The unique, high-calibre works to be shown in this exhibition come from one of the world’s most important private collections of Edvard Munch’s printed works and are to be generously made available to the ALBERTINA Museum for this exceptional presentation.
