Munch, Edvard - MET New York

Between the Clock and the Bed
Although Norwegian artist 

>>  Edvard Munch 1863 Løten † 1944 Oslo 

attained notoriety early in his career for his haunting depictions of human anxiety and alienation that reflected modern experience, he believed that his artistic breakthrough occurred around 1913 at the age of 50.Throughout his career, Munch regularly revisited subjects from his earlier years, exploring them with renewed inspiration and intensity. Self Portrait: Between the Clock and the Bed (1940–43) was one of his final such works and it serves as a lens to reassess Munch's oeuvre.  At The Met Breuer, the exhibition (11/15/2017 - 02/04/2018) Edvard Munch: Between the Clock and the Bed will feature 43 of the artist's compositions created over a span of six decades, including 16 self-portraits and works that have never before been seen in the United States.
