Item description for Edvard Munch: Signs of Modern Art by Dieter Buchhart Ulf Kuster...

Though he is more often viewed as a semi-lunatic Symbolist or proto-Expressionist, the great Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was in fact a forerunner of much Modern art. His works concentrate on the human dramas of love and death, and on contemporary conditions of claustrophobia and alienation--or what he called "the modern life of the soul"--frequently deploying contemporary effects to depict this condition. He worked in paint, printmaking and photography (though he once wrote that "the camera cannot compete with a brush and canvas, as long as it can't be used in heaven and hell"). Edvard Munch: Signs of Modern Art assesses the significance of Munch's oeuvre as a highly independent contribution to Modern art, drawing on more than 100 paintings, as well as 60 drawings and prints. In flouting the boundaries between the genres of painting and printmaking, in his work with photography and film, and through his emphasis on process--for example exposing his paintings to outdoor weather--Munch opened up a turn-of-the-century view of the future.

Reviews - What do customers think about Edvard Munch: Signs of Modern Art?

A lovely tribute to Munch, kudos to Hatje-Cantz  Apr 22, 2008
When I first saw this book I was immediately won over. The plates are large, many if not most are full page. There is much of his graphic work, the color is very good, even the text is large and very legible. Art historians have ruined the art book. They believe that their words are more important than the reproductions of the art. The art book is our only real museum, the only way most of us will ever know the great, and not-so-great, art in the world is by reproductions in art books. I will never have the money to tour London, Berlin, St. Petersburg, Tokyo, etc. Books are the only way most of us will know these creations. I hope Hatje Cantz will continue this format, large, beautiful plates, and large, spare text.
Mostly good  Feb 28, 2008
Images are good, but some of them are very small. They are not page size. The biggest are 26x19 cm, and the smallest 13.5x10 cm.
