About this work

Also known as

Love and angst


'Printmaking was central to Edvard Munch's creative process and established his reputation as an artist. It was in this medium that he excelled in depicting human emotions and experiences, from love and desire to jealousy, anxiety and grief. This study of Munch's prints sheds new light on some of the artist's most remarkable works, and includes a fascinating and perceptive interview with Norwegian writer Karl Ove Knausgaard.' -- Provided by publisher.
