Zusammenfassung

Although almost everyone recognizes Edvard Munch's famous painting "The Scream", hardly anyone knows much about the man. This book is the biography of Edvard Munch in English. It explores the events of his turbulent life and unerringly places his experiences in their intellectual, emotional, and spiritual contexts.

Edvard Munch Zusammenfassung

Edvard Munch: Behind The Scream Sue Prideaux

What kind of person could have created 'The Scream', the painting that expresses most vividly the uncertainties and anguish of the twentieth century? This intimate and moving biography brings Norwegian artist Edvard Munch to life, exploring his turbulent early years, his later years as a recluse, and his efforts to paint not what he saw, but what he experienced. 'A magisterial portrait of a deeply troubled man.' Frances Spalding, 'Sunday Times' 'anyone who wants to know how and why Munch painted as he did should read this book.' Tom Rosenthal, 'Independent on Sunday' 'it is packed with information and event. Few biographies of artists can be described as gripping. This often is.' Martin Gayford, 'Sunday Telegraph' 'an absorbing account of the social and intellectual forces, as well as the personal demons, that Munch struggled against - or solicited - in order to create.' Alan Jenkins, 'Times Literary Supplement' 'It is among Prideaux's achievements to give us a thousand details that pull Munch into sharper focus.' Christopher Riopelle, 'Apollo Magazine' 'Prideaux sorts out Munch's work and his difficult life with a scholar's eye for history and a novelist's eye for anecdotes.' Gwen Gibson, 'Washington Times' 'An assured and vivid biography.' Peter Schjeldahl, 'New Yorker'

Edvard Munch Bewertungen

"'Beautifully illustrated, this is one of the most engaging biographies I have read this year.' Mohara Gill, Art Buyer at Foyles Bookshop, The Bookseller '... a magisterial portrait of a deeply troubled man. It is both humorous and tragic in its account of Munch's abortive relationships with women, his dependence on drink, and his struggle for success and recognition.' Frances Spalding, The Sunday Times '... an absorbing account of the social and intellectual forces, as well as the personal demons, that Munch struggled against - or solicited - in order to create.' Alan Jenkins, Times Literary Supplement 'In Edvard Munch: Behind the Scream, Sue Prideaux, who speaks fluent Norwegian and was able to read Munch's diaries first hand, extends the understanding of this complex man.' Sue Hubbard, The Independent '... it is packed with information and event. Few biographies of artists can be described as gripping. This often is.' Martin Gayford, The Sunday Telegraph"
