Jay A. Clarke, Rothman Family Curator, Prints and Drawings, The Art Institute of Chicago: Edvard Munch’s art is most often interpreted through his emotions: love, anxiety, isolation, grief, jealousy, lust, and sickness, exemplified in his iconic work The Scream. Due to this historical focus on Munch's biography, his landscape imagery has remained understudied. This talk will address Munch’s representations of nature, considering how specific sites, like the forest or the shoreline, were motivated by the artist’s scientific and philosophical beliefs. sponsored by Art History.
