The artist reflected his innermost feelings in his work: In reality, my art is a free confession, an attempt to clarify to myself my own relation to life... Although Edvard Munch cannot be clearly identified with any single movement, he is deemed a pioneer of Expressionism.

Taschen Basic Art Series is a great line of books for anyone who wants to become familiar with an artist, and doesn't want to spend a fortune doing so. Don't expect an impressive large-format coffee table book. These books are rather small, but they are still full of art and information. They also are good gift ideas if you want to introduce a friend or loved one to one of your favourite painters.
The expressionist Edvard Munch's masterpiece was "The Scream" (as pictured on the cover of this book), but it was not his only gem. However, be forewarned that there is a lot of darkness and macabre in his artwork, and the subject matter might not be appreciated by everyone.
