In Norway, he is a national figure, but outside its borders, the painter Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is often recognized simply for being the author of the icon of modern art “The Scream”.

In collaboration with the Munch Museum in Oslo, The Musée d’Orsay in Paris has opened a retrospective of the artist to show the the strong symbolist charge of his works “Edvard Munch. A poem of life, love and death”.

“The exhibition will present about a hundred works, paintings, but also drawings, prints or even engraved blocks, reflecting the diversity of his practice. This large-scale presentation, with a retrospective dimension, will cover the entire career of the artist.

It will invite visitors to revisit the Norwegian painter’s work in its entirety by following the thread of an ever-inventive pictorial thinking: a work that is both fundamentally coherent, even obsessive, and at the same time constantly renewed.” (Musée d’Orsay)

“Edvard Munch. A poem of life, love and death” – Curated by Claire Bernardi, Director, Musée de l’Orangerie, in collaboration with Estelle Begué, Documentary Research Officer, Musée d’Orsay. From September 20th, 2022 to January 22nd, 2023.
