Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944)
Edvard Munch, Norway's most popular artist, was a
painter, lithographer, etcher, and wood engraver. He is looked upon as one of the most
significant influences on the development of German and Central European expressionism.
Munch's convulsed and tortuous art was formed by the misery and conflicts of his time,
and, even more important, by his own unhappy life.
