About this exhibition:

In 2013, all of Norway will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863–1944), one of the towering figures of modern art. This is already being hailed a “once-in-a-lifetime show”.  Global interest is huge – not least as a result of one of his four The Scream paintings having recently set a public art auction record of $120 million.

Munch 150 will be co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo. This exhibition is the most ambitious presentation of Munch’s art ever. With 220 paintings it will display the greatest number of Munch’s key works ever. Many know Munch as the man who painted The Scream, but his complete works are remarkable and secure his place as one of the most greatest artists to have ever lived.

Once again, the event will be going behind-the-scenes to show some of the process of putting the exhibition together – as well as touring Norway to provide an in-depth biography of a man who lived from the mid 19th century right through to the German occupation of Norway in the Second World War.  Norwegian and international guests will also offer their expert insight and knowledge to host Tim Marlow.  A superb show and a fantastic event for cinema screens.
