Edvard Munch

From 06 October 2015 to 17 January 2016

In the autumn of 2015, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, in collaboration with the Munch Museet of Oslo, will host the first major exhibition to be held on the Norwegian artist in Madrid since 1984. Curated by Paloma Alarcó, Chief Curator of Modern Painting at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, and Jon-Ove Steihaug, Senior Curator and Acting Head of Exhibitions and Collections of the Munch Museet, Oslo, the show will examine Edvard Much’s long and prolific career through eighty works by the painter, half of them from the collection of the Munch Museet.

Structured by themes, it will explore the representation of the human figure in various settings: the coast, the patient’s room, the abyss, the green room, the forest, night, the artist’s studio… In order to show the radical nature of his artistic language, the exhibition will study the interplay between flat and sinuous forms, the ambiguity of opposites, symbolic colour, the expressive deformation of the body and the use of experimental textures and engraving techniques. Edvard Munch will ultimately analyse the artistic strategies used by the painter to orient space towards a psychic dimension and convert his compositions into a lasting truth that symbolises the human condition.
