Munch By Himself: The Self-Portraits as the Mirror of Personal Experience

Dr Iris Müller-Westermann discusses this significant corpus of Munch’s artistic output.

There are few artists who have dedicated themselves to such merciless and revealing self-analysis or who have been driven so repeatedly to self-representation as the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. Munch’s self-portraits were executed in every imaginable type and form, as heads, busts, half-length, three-quarter-length and full-length figures. He painted himself both clothed and nude, standing, sitting, sometimes reclining, the head seen from the front and in profile. Dr Iris Müller-Westermann, curator of the exhibition, discusses this significant corpus of Munch’s artistic output which forms an uncompromising visual autobiography in which the artist explores his own personal feelings of alienation but also the existential isolation of the modern individual.
