EDVARD MUNCH: THE FRIEZE OF LIFE. Arne Eggum et al. National Gallery, London, 1992. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 144 pp. with 129 ills. (76 col.). 29 x 23 cm. LC 92-64016 ISBN 0810936305 In English.
Focusing on a seminal series of paintings exploring the themes of love, anxiety and death that were produced by Munch (1863-1944) during the 1890s (among them some of the Norwegian artist's best-known images), this catalogue documents 35 works collectively entitled The Frieze of Life, along with 40 prints and drawings based on the paintings and nine related canvases of the early 1900s. Fine reproductions and detailed discussions of the featured works are accompanied by a 1918 text by Munch on the series and four scholarly essays which discuss its creation in the context of the artist's life, analyze the motifs central to his oeuvre, chronicle his activities in the art worlds of late 19th-century Oslo and Berlin, and examine his wide-ranging experiments in printmaking.
