Description

By Gary Garrels, Jon-Ove Steihaug, and Sheena Wagstaff 
Preface by Karl Ove Knausgaard

This important book offers a focused reappraisal of the exceptional works of Edvard Munch (1863–1944) by examining them in the light of his haunting, late-career, Self Portrait: Between the Clock and the Bed.This signature work, which represents a culmination of Munch's emblematic themes of mortality, isolation, and anxiety, provides a perfect lens through which to view the artist's entire oeuvre. Informative essays consider Munch’s position in the art world, his conception of a self as a means of experimentation, and the question of whether, and to what extent, he manipulated his famously precarious mental state. A previously unpublished preface by the celebrated novelist Karl Ove Knausgaard describes the Norwegian writer's longstanding fascination with Munch. Featuring 50 masterworks from throughout the painter's career, this is an intimate, provocative study of an enigmatic artist and his remarkable legacy.

Gary Garrels is Elise S. Haas Senior Curator of Painting and Sculpture at SFMOMA.

Sheena Wagstaff is Leonard A. Lauder Chairman of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Jon-Ove Steihaug is Director of Exhibitions and Collections at the Munch Museum, Oslo.
