Edvard Munch: Masterpieces from Bergen | Author: Barnaby Wright

This important publication accompanies a major exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery, London, of paintings by Edvard Munch (1863?1944). The catalogue and accompanying exhibition showcase eighteen major works from the collection of KODE Art Museums in Bergen, one of the most important collections of Munch paintings in the world. The works span the most significant part of Munch's artistic development and have never before been shown as a group outside of Scandinavia.

This book explores this group of remarkable works in detail and considers the important role of its collector, Rasmus Meyer. The exhibition and publication include seminal paintings from Munch's early "realist" phase of the 1880s, such as Morning and Summer Night, pivotal works that show the artist's move towards the expressive and psychologically charged work for which he became famous. These paintings launched Munch's career and set the stage for his renowned, highly expressive paintings of the 1890s.?
