Edvard Munch

and Germany
23 September – 27 November 1994

Edvard Munch (1863–1944) lived mainly in Germany from 1892 to 1908. In Berlin, he belonged to an avant-garde circle around August Strindberg; it was here that he created his main works, which he summarized in the Frieze of Life. Munch’s work was initially received very critically in Germany, but he also found his first patrons and collectors here.

The exhibition focused on this crucial phase of the artist’s development. Among the 125 exhibits were paintings of the Frieze of Life such as Anxiety, Madonna, Vampire, and also The Scream, which was a version of the Munch Museum in Oslo. In addition, Munch’s work was shown in the context of paintings by German artists. After Munich, the exhibition was also shown at the Kunsthalle Hamburg and the National Gallery in Berlin.
