HATJE CANTZ

Edvard Munch: Theme And Variation

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.
