    Oil on cardboard
    Munch-museet, Oslo, Norway.

    This early view from the apartment in Kristiania (modern-day Oslo) in which Munch grew up with his father and aunt (his mother had died of tuberculosis when he was five) was painted in the winter of 1880-81 when Munch, just seventeen, had given up his studies at the technical college and decided to become a painter, enrolling at the Royal School of Art and Design in Kristiania.

    Dominated by the tower of the Old Aker church under heavy leaden skies, the picture is no doubt a reflection of the teenaged Munch's state of mind, growing up a sickly child with his overbearingly pious father who regarded art as an 'unholy trade'

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.
