Munch Revisited: Edvard Munch and the Art of Today
Edvard MunchISBN: 3938025093;
Book DescriptionThe thieves who stole Edvard Munch's The Scream from the Munch Museum in Norway are still at large, but contemporary artists have been borrowing from him for years, as this book shows. Over 50 paintings and graphic works by Munch share a kinship with approximately 50 selected works by 30 contemporary artists. The bowed head of a figure seemingly in mourning in Elizabeth Peyton's Tony Rum Island echoes the posture of a woman in Munch's Das Weinende Madchen . The vulnerable yet protective pose of a naked girl on a bed in Munch's Puberty gets quoted in the video of the same name from Norwegian artist AK Dolven. Among the other contemporary artists we find here in debt to Munch are Robert Gober, Georg Baselitz,Nan Goldin, Antony Gormley, Jurgen Partenheimer, Louise Bourgeois, Sam Taylor-Wood, Peter Doig, Martin Kippenberger, Paul Winstanley, Erwin Wurm, Tracey Emin, Eric Fischl, and many more.
