Edvard Munch: A Genius of PrintmakingEdvard Munch: A Genius of Printmaking

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Gerd Woll.

Love, pain and death; passion, loneliness and sorrow--the entire oeuvre of Edvard Munch (1863–1944) revolves around the fundamental experiences of human existence. Munch is regarded as one of the trailblazers of the Expressionist currents that informed European painting in the early twentieth century. Throughout, Munch’s graphic works were not by-products but rather a central element of his oeuvre, from the first etchings in 1894 to the lithographs he made just before his death. Among the masterpieces included in this representative volume of images and texts are graphic versions of Munch’s world-famous subjects in the form of large-format color lithographs, etchings, woodcuts, hand-colored prints and experimental prints on colored paper. Munch’s graphic works, in which he achieved a persuasive condensation of his major Symbolist allegories, captivate the viewer with their subtle color palettes and their expressive sense of reduction.
Edvard Munch (1863–1944) was born in Loton, Norway, and studied design and art in Oslo. In May of 1885 he traveled to Paris on a scholarship, and after the deaths of his sister and father the following year, he began to spend most of his time in France. His painting first achieved fame--or notoriety--with an 1892 exhibition in Berlin, which also led directly to his influence upon the German Expressionists. Despite struggles with alcohol and mental health, Munch lived to the age of 80.

Edvard Munch and DenmarkEdvard Munch and Denmark

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Dieter Buchhart. Text by Anne-Brigite Fonsmark, Gerd Woll, Gry Hedin.

For the celebrated Norwegian painter Edvard Munch (1863–1944), one of the pioneers of Expressionism, the vibrant modern city of Copenhagen was both a bridge to Europe and an occasional refuge. Munch's lively exchanges with Danish artists and authors led to further intensive encounters with the art of Paul Gauguin, and also with Impressionism, Symbolism and Synthetism. During an existential crisis that began around the turn of the century and lasted until 1908, Munch time and again returned to Denmark. Rich in fascinating material, this book is the first to take a thorough look at Munch's complex relationship to this Scandinavian country, demonstrating the extent to which his Danish contacts influenced his reception of contemporary French painting, as well as his own early oeuvre. This volume presents lesser-known works made in and around Copenhagen and during Munch's seven-month stay in a psychiatric clinic.

Edvard Munch: Signs of Modern ArtEdvard Munch: Signs of Modern Art

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Dieter Buchhart. Text by Oivind Storm Bjerke, Ulf Küster, Philippe Büttner.

Though he is more often viewed as a semi-lunatic Symbolist or proto-Expressionist, the great Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was in fact a forerunner of much Modern art. His works concentrate on the human dramas of love and death, and on contemporary conditions of claustrophobia and alienation--or what he called "the modern life of the soul"--frequently deploying contemporary effects to depict this condition. He worked in paint, printmaking and photography (though he once wrote that "the camera cannot compete with a brush and canvas, as long as it can't be used in heaven and hell"). Edvard Munch: Signs of Modern Art assesses the significance of Munch's oeuvre as a highly independent contribution to Modern art, drawing on more than 100 paintings, as well as 60 drawings and prints. In flouting the boundaries between the genres of painting and printmaking, in his work with photography and film, and through his emphasis on process--for example exposing his paintings to outdoor weather--Munch opened up a turn-of-the-century view of the future.

Edvard Munch: The Modern Life of the SoulEdvard Munch: The Modern Life of the Soul

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Kynaston McShine. Essays by Patricia Berman, Reinhold Heller, Elizabeth Prelinger and Tina Yarborough.

In an exploration of modern existential experience unparalleled in the history of art, Edvard Munch, the internationally renowned Norwegian painter, printmaker and draftsman, sought to translate personal trauma into universal terms and in the process to comprehend the fundamental components of human existence: birth, love and death. Inspired by personal experience, as well as by the literary and philosophical culture of his time, Munch radically reconceived the given world as the product of his imagination. This book explores Munch's unique artistic achievement in all its richness and diversity, surveying his career in its entire developmental range from 1880 to 1944. The comprehensive volume features a lavish selection of color plates, an introduction by Kynaston McShine, Chief Curator at Large at The Museum of Modern Art, and essays by Patricia Berman, Reinhold Heller, Elizabeth Prelinger, and Tina Yarborough, as well as in-depth documentation of Munch's art and career. It will accompany the most extensive exhibition of Munch's art in America in three decades.

Edvard Munch: Theme And VariationEdvard Munch: Theme And Variation

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Artwork by Edvard Munch. Contributions by Klaus Albrecht Schröder. Text by Christoph Asendorf, Marian Bisanz-Prakken, Dieter Buchhart, Antonia Hoerschelmann, Frank Høifødt, Iris Müller-Westermann, Gerd Woll.

Loneliness, jealousy, love, and death. There is hardly another artist who explored the basic experiences of human life and his own personal angst so forcefully and in such unsettling images as the Norwegian painter and graphic artist Edvard Munch. Munch's depictions of the crisis of the individual positioned his work as representative of modern consciousness, and the form he used to express this inner drama set him as a precursor and founder of expressionism. Munch's entire creative period is characterized by a continuous return to his central, melancholic motif of the human condition. In essays by well-known authors in the field, this volume provides a unique, complex, and expansive analysis of the emergence, development, and inner fabric of theme and variation in Munch's oeuvre. Different versions and renditions of paintings like The Scream, Melancholy, and Jealousy are presented side by side for a renewed view of these icons of modernism. Additionally, the book examines the close relationship between the artist's graphic and painterly works, acknowledging that Munch's interest in motif was not limited to painting, but that it translated meaningfully into printed media such as lithographs, etchings, and woodcuts, all documented in this book.
