Edvard Munch

Edvard Munch The Sun

Plagued throughout his childhood with illness and loss, Edvard Munch (1863 – 1944) is known for paintings which attempt to illustrate the human psyche.  His works often express bleakness, melancholy, anxiety and torment (The Scream).  After recovering from a mental breakdown in 1909, his works, including The Sun, became more colorful and optimistic.
