Edvard Munch: Transforming Nature

November 18, 2023 – April 1, 2024

This first exhibition of landscapes by Edvard Munch focuses on his approach to nature.

On the one hand, Edvard Munch viewed nature as a cyclically self-renewing power; on the other, he saw it as a reflection of his own inner turmoil. Munch developed a pantheistic understanding of nature, which he projected onto the forests and coasts of Norway. The dramatic weather depicted in his paintings is especially striking in light of the current climate crisis.
