Edvard Munch biography: This video discusses the life and times of the Norwegian expressionist artist Edvard Munch. Death, love and angst are prominent themes he explored through out his life. The famous artist Edvard Munch was born in Loten in Norway, but lost his mother and sister at a young age.
Edvard Munch is perhaps most famous for his paintings, The Scream, Death in the Sick Room, but his series of paintings, The Frieze of Life contains many remarkable paintings such as the Dance of Life. Munch suffered from bouts of mental illness and alcoholism, both issues are often reflected in his work. He also did a series of paintings for Oslo University, in Norway and for the Freia Chocolate Factory also in Oslo. The latter years of his life were spent in his estate at Ekely, Norway painting many self portraits which explored the effects of old age. Edvard Munch died in 1944 at the age of 80.
