Visit to the Edvard Munch Exhibition, Glasgow
- Hunterian Art Gallery |
Saturday morning visit to the Exhibition of Edvard Munch Prints with an introduction by Peter Black, Curator of Prints at the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery and co-author of the book accompanying the exhibition.
This major loan exhibition from the Munch Museum in Oslo features 40 of the finest prints from throughout Munch's long career and includes the Hunterian's copy of the red woodcut 'In the Man's Brain 1897'.
Munch's enduring influence came through colour woodcuts. These powerful and important prints inspired a new fascination for woodcut among German Expressionist artists and are among the finest prints of the twentieth century. This is the most substantial display of Munch prints to be exhibited in the UK in over 35 years.
