Becoming Edvard Munch : influence, anxiety, and myth by Jay A Clarke( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 696 WorldCat member 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 594 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket

8 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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."--Jacket
