Love and Angst

Edvard Munch “was as radical a print-maker as he was a painter. It was his black-and-white lithograph of The Scream, created in 1895 after his own 1893 pastel version, which made him famous.”

Is there only one surviving copy? I will be browsing the Munch Museum site in the hopes of learning more.

“The show tracks his traumatic upbringing near Oslo, through revelatory journeys to Paris and Berlin, where tumultuous love affairs and a pre-war ferment of ideas fostered his powerfully expressive art.”
