Munch

Overview

Many people instantly recognize The Scream, a harrowing painting of a person in pain. It appears on countless posters, T-shirts, and coffee mugs. The main character in the Scream horror movies wears a Halloween mask modeled on the painting. The painting made headlines around the world when it was stolen twice-in 1994 and again in 2004.

Overview

Many people instantly recognize The Scream, a harrowing painting of a person in pain. It appears on countless posters, T-shirts, and coffee mugs. The main character in the Scream horror movies wears a Halloween mask modeled on the painting. The painting made headlines around the world when it was stolen twice-in 1994 and again in 2004.

Yet not many people are familiar with the artist, Norwegian painter Edvard Munch. When he was a child, he lost his mother and his sister to tuberculosis. With another sister on the verge of an emotional breakdown, Munch became familiar with death and mental anguish at a young age. These feelings are reflected in The Scream and much of his other masterpieces.

From his troubles, Munch sparked a new type of art called expressionism-and produced over 20,000 pieces. Read how this man became one of just a handful of artists to have an entire museum devoted exclusively to his works.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 6-9

In addition to offering interesting biographical facts and commentary on the work of these artists, each chapter includes one page about a related person or event under the heading "For Your Information." Rembrandt tracks the artist's rise to fame and the bitter years and bankruptcy that followed. The profile of Munch explains how the artist attempted to convey his deep feelings of anxiety in his paintings. He became preoccupied with death at an early age, and he also created many works alluding to the disastrous results that can occur in relationships between men and women. One chapter includes some slightly gory details about the day Munch's lover shot his hand as he tried to keep her from killing herself. Each book includes color reproductions. Both titles go beyond basic facts, providing historical context and significance of the art and the artist. These titles provide plenty of information for reports in a reader-friendly format.-Lisa Glasscock, Columbine Public Library, Littleton, CO
