Becoming Edvard Munch : influence, anxiety, and myth by Jay A Clarke ( Book )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 641 libraries worldwide
"Two potent myths have traditionally defined our understanding of the artist Edvard Munch (1862-1944): he was mentally unstable, as his iconic work The Scream (1893) suggests, and he was radically independent, following his own singular vision. Becoming Edvard Munch: Influence, Anxiety, and Myth persuasively challenges these entrenched perceptions. In this book, Jay A. Clarke demonstrates that Munch was thoroughly in control of his artistic identity, a savvy businessman skilled in responding to the market and shaping popular opinion. Moreover, the author shows that Munch was keenly aware of the art world of his day, adopting motifs, styles, and techniques from a wide variety of sources, including many Scandinavian artists. By presenting Munch's paintings, prints, and drawings in relation to those of European contemporaries, including Harriet Backer, James Ensor, Vincent van Gogh, Max Klinger, Christian Krohg, and Claude Monet, Clarke reveals often surprising connections and influences. This interpretive approach, grounded in Munch's diaries and letters, period criticism, and the artworks themselves, reintroduces Munch as an artist who cultivated myths both visual and personal. Becoming Edvard Munch features beautiful color reproductions of approximately 150 works, including 75 paintings and 75 works on paper by Munch and his peers"--Book jacket.
Edvard Munch : the complete graphic works by Gerd Woll ( Book )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 566 libraries worldwide
"This book is a contribution to the literature on Edvard Munch and his activities as a printmaker. It is an invaluable reference work for print experts and Munch enthusiasts alike. Munch's graphic works have fascinated people all over the world for more than a hundred years. He himself arranged a number of exhibitions of his prints and was represented in many print rooms and important private collections in Europe before World War II. When he died in 1944, Munch bequeathed his vast collection of some 18,000 prints to the City of Oslo. In 1963, the Munch-museet opened its doors to the public, and since the bequest has shown Munch's prints in numerous exhibitions. The author's extensive research and the enormous attention to detail in the individual entries will make this the standard reference work for many years to come."--BOOK JACKET.

"Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is Norway's most important painter and graphic artist and the only one to exercise a decisive influence on European art." "This beautifully illustrated book features the most important works from the Munch Museum, Oslo: a celebration of the artist's oeuvre. The museum's collection is housed in a specially commissioned building, designed by the architects Gunnar Fougner and Einar Myklebust, which opened in 1963." "The many facets of Munch's art - which expanded beyond famous oil paintings, such as The Scream, Madonna and Anxiety, to thousands of graphic prints and drawings - are brought vividly to life through three principal essays: Edvard Munch: His Life, by Marit Lande; Edvard Munch as a Painter, by Arne Eggum and Edvard Munch's Graphic Works, by Gerd Woll."--BOOK JACKET.
Edvard Munch : signs of modern art by Edvard Munch ( Book )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 383 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Though he is more often viewed as a semi-lunatic Symbolist or proto-Expressionist, the great Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was in fact a forerunner of much Modern art. His works concentrate on the human dramas of love and death, and on contemporary conditions of claustrophobia and alienation-or what he called "the modern life of the soul"-frequently deploying contemporary effects to depict this condition. He worked in paint, printmaking and photography (though he once wrote that "the camera cannot compete with a brush and canvas, as long as it can't be used in heaven and hell"). Edvard Munch: Signs of Modern Art assesses the significance of Munch's oeuvre as a highly independent contribution to Modern art, drawing on more than 100 paintings, as well as 60 drawings and prints. In flouting the boundaries between the genres of painting and printmaking, in his work with photography and film, and through his emphasis on process-for example exposing his paintings to outdoor weather-Munch opened up a turn-of-the-century view of the future.
