The Norwegian Edvard Munch is one of the most important painters in the history of modern art. In addition, he is next to Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin pioneers of Expressionism, an art style whose roots are in the outgoing impressionism. The basic idea lay in the immediate expression of inner feelings, as a countermovement to the rather superficial representation in impressionism. It was an important concern of Expressionist artists to express profound, passionate experiences such as fear, joy, grief, anger or disappointment in their images in order to touch the viewer emotionally. Even years before Expressionism began, Munch painted one of his most famous paintings. The cry enters art history as the first expressionist painting.

Edvard was born in 1863 as the son of a military doctor. He grows up in Oslo. His mother dies early. His father is suffering from a mental illness. Later his sister dies too. A very formative childhood experience that does not pass without a trace of the young painter. He suffers from nervousness; later, like his father, he falls ill with depression. As an adult, he drowns his worries too often in alcohol. He feels persecuted, has anxiety and is hurting himself. In 1880, he consciously decides to pursue a career as an artist. He breaks off his studies in engineering and joins a group of bohemians. Together, the group, consisting of painters, writers and other intellectuals, opposes the conservative bourgeoisie and social morality. He formulates a manifesto for young artists, which causes a stir in the population.

His artistic development is also progressing steadily. He has talent. Studied in Oslo and received several scholarships for further education in Europe. His style is characterized by his spontaneous brushwork and rough shapes. He interprets his experience in a very own, abstract way. In his pictures, he focuses on strong, strong colors, which often have a contrasting effect on the viewer. At the same time, he never realistically reproduces reality. He organizes his own exhibitions, where he presents his works to the public. At his first exhibition in Berlin, where he presented 55 pictures at the Verein Berliner Künstler, he provoked one of the biggest art scandals. The story is known as Fall Munch today. The incidents play a key role in the further development of German art, because the provocations of Munch initiated the beginning of modernity in Germany. Shortly thereafter begins his painterly breakthrough in Europe. However, his success is overshadowed again and again by depressive phases of life in which he once shoots himself in his fingers. In the painting "The Death of the Marat" he uses his feelings from those days. There are nervous breakdowns. He changes his place of residence again and again. Commutes through Europe's major cities of Paris, London Berlin and his Norwegian hometown. He dies during the riots in World War II at the age of 81 years in Norway. © Meisterdrucke
