Who was the man behind The Scream, the iconic painting that so acutely expresses the anguish of the twentieth century?

Edvard Munch (1863 – 1944) was twenty-eight when he embarked on a lifelong effort to paint his ‘soul’s diary’ – and began a perverse love affair with self-destruction. This intimate and moving life of the Norwegian artist explores his turbulent early years, his time as a recluse, and his intense efforts to paint not what he saw, but what he experienced.
In addition to her prize-winning biography of Edvard Munch, Sue Prideaux is the author of I Am Dynamite! A Life of Friedrich Nietzsche, longlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize 2019, and Strindberg: A Life, shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson prize for nonfiction and winner of the Duff Cooper prize.
