Spotlight On National Gallery Of Art's 'Edvard Munch: Master Prints' Exhibit

WHO: Edvard Munch

WHAT: 'Edvard Munch: Master Prints' Exhibit

WHEN: July 31-October 31, 2010

WHERE: National Gallery of Art
4th and Constitution Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20565

WHY:

In this fascinating exhibition, the National Gallery of Art brings together nearly 60 of Munch's most important prints to show how his persistent experimentation and virtuosic handling of woodcut, lithography, and intaglio endowed different impressions of his primary motifs with new meanings. Exploring these transformations in several series of Munch's prints, selected not only from its own superb holdings but also from two exceptional private collections, the curators of this exhibition offer a richer and more nuanced appreciation for this great Norwegian master.
