Edvard Munch. The Modern Eye

Edvard Munch (1863-1944), who is highly acclaimed today for his vibrant Symbolist painting, was a pioneer of Expressionism. 'Edvard Munch. The Modern Eye' is among the year's most prestigious exhibitions and will be the first of its kind in German-speaking countries for 15 years. From 9 February to 13 May 2012, a selection of Munch's art will be on display at the Schirn gallery in Frankfurt, with an emphasis on his later, less well-researched works up to 1944.
