Review of Edvard Munch: The Modern Eye at Tate Modern
Edvard Munch: The Modern Eye
28 June – 14 October 2012
Although best known for his oils on canvas, Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was one of the first generation of painters to also dabble in amateur photography. When he died in 1944, he left the contents of his house and studio to the city of Oslo, and this included some 1,100 canvases, 18,000 prints, 4,500 drawings and watercolours, and 183 photographs. 50 of these are on display now, alongside over 60 of his paintings and some lesser-known film work, at Tate Modern.
