    "The Girls on the Bridge" is a motif Munch returned to again and again over a period of almost 30 years. The composition is more-or-less unchanged in all the versions with the large villa we recognise from "Red Virginia Creeper", the large tree and the pier leading out to the steamship jetty at Aasgaardsstrand.

    However, where the girls are concerned Munch made a number of changes in the various versions, for example by turning the nearest girl dressed in white to face the opposite way, or by adding a fourth girl to the group.

    This version from1927 is very much like the first version from 1901, which belongs to the National Gallery in Oslo.

    "The Girls on the Bridge" is regarded as one of Munch’s most harmonious and lyrical pictures – though not without erotic undertones. The three girls are peering down into the water where the large tree - which can be interpreted as a phallic symbol - mirrors itself in the summer night.

Edvard Munch1863-1944. The Norwegian artist Edvard Munch is regarded as a pioneer in the Expressionist movement in modern painting. At an early stage Munch was recognized in Germany and central Europe as one of the creators of a new epoch. His star is still on the ascendant in the other European countries, and in the rest of the world. Munch's art from the 1890s is the most well known, but his later work is steadily attracting greater attention, and it appears to inspire present-day artists in particular. Often called the father of Expressionism, the Norwegian painter suffered as a child with illness, loss, and psychological terror, emotions that characterize many early images. He chose painting as his life's work at a young age and traveled throughout Europe, especially to Paris, where he absorbed the influences of Impressionism, then Post-Impressionism, and Art Nouveau design. While in Berlin, he joined a circle of writers and artists that included playwrights Henrik Ibsen and August Strindberg, who became friends and collaborators. Just as his Scandinavian colleagues, Munch unflinchingly brought the darker side of the human experience to his art.
