Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is often associated with the Expressionists, but he was really a Symbolist who worked as a painter and a printmaker. He certainly had a large influence on the Expressionists. Perhaps most widely known for his famous painting from 1893 entitled The Scream, it is little known that he actually painted several versions of it - as he did with many of his paintings. The Scream was originally called Despair. Munch explored many aspects of life and love, but was most focused on the dark side: melancholy, fear and death. His anxiety is present in each of his works as is his odd sense of woman - either frail or devouring.
