This exhibition aims to present Norwegian painter Edvard Munch 'emphatically' as a 20th-century artist.

Edvard Munch, The Girls on the Bridge, 1901

The painter of The Scream is often associated with 19th-century movements such as Symbolism and Impressionism, but this exhibition will focus on the 20th-century works and their debt to contemporary developments in photography, film and stage productions.

Don't miss

Munch's large body of self portraits is represented, with photographic pieces and his final self portrayal, Between the Clock and the Bed, in which he shows himself old and frail. There will also be works that reference the advancing technological developments in cinema and photography, such as On the Operating Table, in which the protagonists loom cinematically from the canvas.
