Covering many aspects of Munch’s versatile and diverse approaches, the publication includes articles on individual themes and phenomena encompassing Munch’s evolving perspective on art. Also covered are new perspectives from contemporary research, resulting from special exhibitions and from the catalogues raisonnés of Munch’s prints and paintings, in addition to the artist’s own copious writings. While Munch’s best-known works The Scream and The Sun place him squarely in the canon of Modernism, this publication directs a fresh look at his response to modernistic issues, such as the relationship between art and reality, the position of the individual in the world, the modern role of the artist, and issues relating to Munch and the public. The publication also offers a comprehensive bibliography and a timeline of the artist’s life.
