This is an original 1957 tipped-in color print of a piece by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) entitled "Melancholy," which has a discontent man brooding by himself while some people further along the beach, with arms outstretched, head towards a yellow boat. Although he is considered to be one of the pioneers of expressionism, Munch explored other styles in the early stages of his painting career. He is perhaps most famous for his iconic piece titled "The Scream."

Munch, Edvard

Edvard Munch (Dec. 12, 1863 Ð Jan. 23, 1944) was a Norwegian Symbolist painter, printmaker and forerunner of the Expressionist Art movement. Despite his illness and fatherÕs abusive nature, Munch enrolled at the Royal School of Art and Design of Christiania. He spent time in Paris and Berlin where he picked up inspiration and culture. His most famous painting is ÒThe ScreamÓ which expressed his own anxiety. Even with that success he spent most of his later years in isolation due to the Nazi hatred for his ÒdegenerateÓ art, which they removed from their museums. He died in Oslo where he bequeathed his art to the city, who built a museum in honor of him.
