Primarily known for his masterpiece ‘The Scream,’  

Edvard Munch is regarded as a figural painter whose  

varied themes of love, anxiety, longing and death are  

thought to have been developed from a troubled,  

traumatic childhood. In similarity to his near 

contemporary Vincent van Gogh, Munch strove to  

create a connection between the subject (as he  

himself observed in the world around him) through  

the personal lens of his own psychological, emotional and/or spiritual  perception. What many are not aware of, however, is that Munch was  equally innovative, in a lesser known aspect of his work, with his use of  color. After scouring through endless science and theosophist-philosophical  writings on the science of color itself, Munch came to revere the notion that  color was not merely decorative, but could elicit visual, emotional and  physical effects. Please join us as we explore the many facets of Edvard  Munch’s decades long painting career to eventually become one of the most  controversial, yet renowned, Expressionist-Symbolist artists of the early  20th Century.
