Munch: A Retrospective

October 27 (Sat), 2018 – January 20 (Sun), 2019

Munch: A Retrospective Poster
Edvard Munch (1863-1944)—the great modern painter and creator of The Scream, one of the world’s best-known paintings. This large Munch retrospective will feature some 100 works primarily from the Munch Museum in Norway’s capital, Oslo, the artist’s home town. Included will be some 60 oil paintings along with prints and other works. As a special highlight, the tempera and oil version of The Scream now in the Munch Museum collection—one of several versions by Munch—will make its long-awaited first Japan appearance. Through important works giving forceful expression to facets of human existence—love, despair, jealousy, and loneliness, as well as beautiful paintings of Norway’s natural landscapes and late-period works rendered in bright colors, the exhibition will trace Munch’s some 60-year career.
