For most people, the name Edvard Munch (1863–1944) is synonymous with his iconic painting The Scream (1893). Yet beyond this justly famous masterpiece, the prolific Norwegian artist was also a major figure in the development of 20th-century painting. The themes of desolation and despair in his most popular work resonated with those coming to terms with modernity and acted as an influential precursor to the Expressionist movement in Europe. This concise and inviting book offers a perfect introduction to Munch’s work, including his etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, and set designs. It also details his tragic childhood, his travels in Europe during the emergence of Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, and his circle of friends.

Frank Høifødt is an art historian and Munch specialist, and a former lecturer and curator at the Munch Museum in Oslo.
