"Edvard Munch: A poem of Life, Love and Death" in Musée d'Orsay
Edvard Munch's (1863-1944) work occupies a pivotal position in modern art. The exhibition "Edvard Munch: A poem of life, love and death", which is presented by The Musée d'Orsay, in collaboration with the Munch Museum in Oslo, invites to discover the Norwegian artist's oeuvre in its entirety, following the thread of a pictorial philosophy that has always been inventive, and a body of work that has been both fundamentally coherent, haunting and constantly renewed.
Munch was an outstanding symbolist and the concept of cycles played a key role in his art and thinking. The subjects of death, love, loneliness, the artist's innermost torments, which correspond to various existential crises that the artist went through during his 60 years of creative life, are revealed now on a large scale. The exhibition features more than a hundred of artworks, providing a panorama of Munch's boundless creativity.
