Scandinavia's most famous painter, the Norwegian Edvard Munch (1863-1944), is probably best known for his painting The Scream, a universally recognized icon of terror and despair. (A version was stolen from the Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway, in August 2004, and has not yet been recovered.) But Munch considered himself a writer as well as a painter. Munch began painting as a teenager and, in his young adulthood, studied and worked in Paris and Berlin, where he evolved a highly personal style in paintings and works on paper. And in diaries that he kept for decades, he also experimented with reminiscence, fiction, prose portraits, philosophical speculations, and surrealism. Known as an artist who captured both the ecstasies and the hellish depths of the human condition, Munch conveys these emotions in his diaries but also reveals other facets of his personality in remarks and stories that are alternately droll, compassionate, romantic, and cerebral. This English translation of Edvard Munch's private diaries, the most extensive edition to appear in any language, captures the eloquent lyricism of the original Norwegian text. The journal entries in this volume span the period from the 1880s, when Munch was in his twenties, until the 1930s, reflecting the changes in his life and his work. The book is illustrated with fifteen of Munch's drawings, many of them rarely seen before. While these diaries have been excerpted before, no translation has captured the real passion and poetry of Munch's voice. This is a translation that lets Munch speak for himself and evokes the primal passion of his diaries. J. Gill Holland's exceptional work adds a whole new level to our understanding of the artist and the depth of his scream.

In Self-Portrait: Between the Clock and the Bed, the elderly Edvard Munch stands like a sentinel in his bedroom/studio surrounded by the works that constitute his artistic legacy. A powerful meditation on art, mortality, and the ravages of time, this haunting painting conjures up the Norwegian master’s entire career. It also calls into question certain long-held myths surrounding Munch—that his work declined in quality after his nervous breakdown in 1908–9, that he was a commercially naive social outsider, and that he had only a limited role in the development of European modernism. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Verdana} The present volume aims to rebut such misconceptions by freshly examining this enigmatic artist. In the preface, the renowned novelist Karl Ove Knausgaard considers Munch as a fellow creative artist and seeks to illuminate the source of his distinctive talent. The four groundbreaking essays that follow present numerous surprising insights on matters ranging from Munch’s radical approach to self-portraiture to his role in promoting his own career. They also reveal that Munch has been an abiding inspiration to fellow painters, both during his lifetime and up to the present; artists as varied as Jasper Johns, Bridget Riley, Asger Jorn, and Georg Baselitz have acknowledged his influence. More than sixty of Munch’s paintings, dating from the beginning of his career in the early 1880s to his death in 1944, are accompanied by a generous selection of comparative illustrations and a chronology of the artist’s life. The result is an intimate, provocative study that casts new light on Munch’s unique oeuvre—an oeuvre that Knausgaard describes as having gone “where only a painting can go, to that which is beyond words, but which is still part of our reality.”

Edvard MunchÕs career is effectively divided into two periods: those before and after his mental breakdown in 1908. Prior to his psychiatric treatment and recuperation, the underlying themes of his work bounced between dark sorrow and an overt, aggressive sexuality. But after his breakdown, when he had returned to his homeland of Norway after two decades in France and Germany, his work took a decidedly positive turn in theme and subject. MunchÕs body of work is now being revisited in a modern context. In recent years Munch has finally gained the attention and appreciation of the public and critics alike. The art world was caught off guard when in May 2012 a pastel version of The Scream , created in 1895, sold at auction for $119.9 million. The Nazis labeled MunchÕs art ÒdegenerateÓ along with the art of his contemporaries such as Picasso, Matisse, his beloved Gauguin, and Paul Klee. Eighty-two of MunchÕs paintings were confiscated by the Nazis, but most have now been found.

This anthology springs out of a productive environment that in recent years has been created in Norway for research into the art of Edvard Munch. Comprising scholars from both the University of Oslo and the Munch Museum, this environment is seeking to internationalise the research and broadening the network of scholars working on Munch's art. The nine essays written by art historians from USA, Germany, Switzerland and Norway shed new light upon different sides of Munch and his art, as well as on the impact he has had in art history. The authors in this anthology are more critical of their sources than has been seen earlier in research on Munch, and their interpretations of works are increasingly based on information that can be documented. A diversity of theory now supplements the traditionally biographical approach. One of the authors describes the process of identifying a formerly unknown Munch painting, Seated nude and three male heads, as well as addressing general problems of dating concerning Munch's oeuvres. Another essay focuses on Munch's portrayals of one of the most radical Norwegian art movements in the late 19th century, Kristianiabohemen, and the importance of this movement for Munch's development as an artist. Through analysis of Munch's paintings the authors also focus on Munch's role in the creation of a national identity, and his perception of the male role in contemporary society. In the last essay of the book it is being argued that Munch and his works have often been better comprehended by other artists than by traditional art historians. The essay shows how certain artists, most of them American such as Jim Dine, Andres Serrano and Elizabeth Jones, have appropriated and developed Munch's pictorial imagination, in independent works or in visual quotations.

Errors that determined what was said and written about the great Norwegian over the years and decades. They started with a wrong title for the world-famous work. It is not called “The Scream” at all! And they ended with the ignorance and dismissal of one version of the painting of the Screaming through Nature – perhaps the most important one. It is to be found on its back – and was simply passed over.
