EDWARD MUNCH

when i think of Edvard Munchi can only think of the iconic scream.  although, not too long ago, i had seen the The Scream at the MoMA, and did not want to spend a gorgeous day in zurich enclosed in the Kunsthaus Zürichi heard a ‘scream’ telling me i had to see this exhibit.  so glad i was not indifferent and accepted the invite, as this exhibit was exquisitely curated and just a luvFIND.  edward munch’s life was shaped with illness and death, and these experiences culminated with a fear of love which he considered consuming and destructive.  he believed in the love that transforms, though admiting he never loved.  love, passion and sorrow surrounds this exhibit.  i could not contain from photographing a few works, including ‘the kiss’, a motif he explored up until his death.  i almost had my iPhone confiscated.  the Kunsthaus Zürich holds the largest collection by Edvard Munch outside norway, and the 150 masterpieces represented in this luvFAB exhibit are a rare treat.  on a lovely winter day i heard a scream.  hearing that inner voice is for thebestdressup now!

    Edward Munch hadn’t a easy life, but he did well – in my eyes so “The Sream” was his best painting – he did others that I like more – but in Norway this painting is iconic… 🙂

    Really like this post… 🙂

    interesting post, indeed… 🙂 I’ve been to Norway twice and I visted the National Gallery in Oslo 2 years ago… I took pix with his famous “scream”… very impressive and emotional… He was talented but depressed and unhappy, like most great artists…

  8. I’ve been to the munch museum in Oslo several times, but I’ve never seen any of his stuff abroad. They’re planning to build a new Munch museum in Oslo now and the debate has been going on for years on where & how…
