So you think you know Edvard Munch? Think again

Edvard Munch last chance to see

 Only 2 more days to see the fantastic exhibition in Tate Modern – Edward Munch. I visited it in July. I would love to see it again before it ends.

I was very surprised of his work. I will now take you through the journey of the exhibiton.

 Tate Modern is located a short walk from many stations, however the best view of the gallery will be a walk from St Pauls Cathedral through Millennium Bridge.

This exhibition examines the artist’s work from the 20th century, including sixty paintings, many from the Munch Museum in Oslo, with a rare showing of his work in film and photography. Munch is often seen as a 19th-century Symbolist painter but this exhibition shows how he engaged with modernity and was inspired by the everyday life outside of his studio such as street scenes and incidents. The show also examines how Munch often repeated a single motif over a long period of time in order to re-work it, as can be seen in the different versions of his most celebrated works:  

The Sick Child (1885–1927)

Girls on the Bridge (1899-1900)

He was also able to create illusion of figures moving towards the spectator, this visual trick can be seen in many of Munch’s most innovative works:

 Workers on their Way Home (1913–14)

My favourites were also:

Ashes (1894)

Weeping Woman (1907-1909)

Self Portrait (1895)

Puberty (1894) 

Here, you can watch all exhibition:
