This book presents new research on one of the world’s greatest expressive artists. The book reveals new material about several paintings, and draws astonishing conclusions. Through varying approaches, the book’s four authors let us see Edvard Munch through new eyes. An important part of the book throws new light on Munch’s views on religion and philosophy, emphasising the artist’s strong relation to the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. This is probably the most unusual book ever written on Munch’s life and work.
