“In 2013, all of Norway celebrated the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863 – 1944), one of the towering figures of modern art. The landmark exhibition Munch 150 was co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo. With 220 paintings on view, it brought together the greatest number of Munch’s key works in one place.
Arriving on the heels of the record-breaking $120 million sale of one of Munch’s four Scream paintings at public auction, Munch 150 was hailed internationally as a “once-in-a-lifetime show.” Many know Munch as the man who painted The Scream, but his complete works are remarkable and secure his place as one of the greatest artists to have ever lived. Granted special access by the National and Munch museums in Oslo, this blockbuster documentary from Exhibition on Screen offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the development of Munch 150, while also providing an in-depth biography of the groundbreaking Expressionist artist.” -Exhibition on Screen
