Edvard Munch: So Much More than The Scream (virtual)

September 29, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Edvard Munch, famous for four versions of The Scream, was a prolific Norwegian painter and printmaker. This talk on Friday will look at his fascinating and unconventional life— he was damaged by alcoholism, hallucinations, social isolation, and paranoia— as well as his psychologically evocative paintings. His need to explore situations brimming with emotional content and expressive energy characterizes all of his astonishing work.

Hosted by Friends of the Pennington Public Library and the Hopewell Valley Arts Council | Virtual Zoom Event = PenningtonLibrary.org/Munch | hvartscouncil.org
