Munch: Munch 150

When: Thu., June 27, 7:30 p.m. 2013

I scream, you scream, we all scream for…Edvard Munch. The Norwegian artist is most well known for his painting The Scream, but the film Munch: Munch 150 gives a glimpse into his full 220-painting portfolio. Art historian Tim Marlow virtually hosts this biographic film-viewing event, which is part of the Great Art on Screen global series showcasing the works and biographies of some of the greatest artists of our time. Having recently sold one of the four copies of The Scream for an art auction record of $120 million (not too shabby for someone who’s been dead for almost 70 years), Munch highlights his other expressionist works so viewers can learn more about the artist’s work. Along with featuring his impressive collection, the film will fill the audience in on the man behind The Scream and his life as an artist through the German occupation of Norway in World War II. The motion picture is co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both located in Oslo, Norway.
