This year, all of Norway celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944), one of the towering figures of modern art.
This is already being hailed a "once-in-a-lifetime show" . Global interest is hugenot least as a result of one of his four "The Scream" paintings having recently set a public art auction record of $120 million. Many know Munch as the man who painted "The Scream," but his complete works are remarkable and secure his place as one of the greatest artists to have ever lived.
MUNCH 150 will be co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo.
Once again, the event film will be going behind-the-scenes to show some of the process of putting the exhibition togetheras well as touring Norway to provide an in-depth biography of a man who lived from the mid-19th century right through to the German occupation of Norway in the Second World War. Norwegian and international guests will also offer their expert insight and knowledge to host Tim Marlow. MUNCH 150: A superb show and a fantastic event film.
