Edvard Munch: Archetypes

"The Day After" (1894) is reproduced from Edward Munch: Archetypes, the outstanding new overview from Thyssen-Bornemisza. Painted after Henri Gervex's 1894 "Rolla" around the time that Munch was carnally infatuated with the wife of a colleague, it is a work that Patricia G. Berman cites in the transition from memory to motif. "Munch drew upon his own erotic life as a source for his imagery, or rather, he drew upon the sensations he remembered experiencing in relation to these liaisons… His memories of his ecstatic transformation from youth to lover, and his subsequent descent into jealousy and isolation, became lifelong creative sources for his work."
