Edvard Munch - Frieze of Life

Category: Exhibition 18. October 2015

In our film the curator Dieter Buchhart leads us through Munchs "Frieze of Life" at the museum Albertina in Vienna.

One of the chief works, the Frieze of Life, Edvard Munchs dramatic representation of scenes out of his life, contains the essential motifs of his oeuvre, as summed up in the exhibition title Love, Death and Loneliness. It becomes evident how much life experiences, family tragedies -like his mother’s early death- and unhappy relationships left their mark on the artist’s work. A clear example is, among others, the picture “The Sick Child” of his sister Sophie on her deathbed, surrounded by her family. The strong feelings are reflected in the treatment of the material, with the colours being applied and scratched off repeatedly. Munch reworked his printing plates many times over the years. The wood cut “Two Human Beings. The Lonelies” is the only hand-coloured print in this exhibition, on display along with other versions of the work. Munch often used his graphic works as basis for a conversion into paintings, where he used chalk, ink and watercolour, besides oil paint.

The exhibition is on display at the Albertina museum till January 24th, 2016. (written by Cem Angeli)
