Albertina • Vienna, Austria

Edvard Munch: Love, Death and Loneliness – Albertina 25 September 2015 – 24 January 2016

Just as the Renaissance had its Dürer and the Baroque had its Rembrandt, the modern era had Norwegian artist Edvard Munch: his lithographs, etchings, and woodcuts represent the unequivocal apex of 20th-century printed graphics.

Twelve years after the major Munch retrospective with which the Albertina celebrated its reopening in 2003, the museum now presents this expressionist innovator in his role as a pioneer of printed graphics. The upcoming exhibition will show around 80 of Munch’s most important works; these are held by a private collection and have been generously made available to the Albertina for this exceptional presentation.
