The Frieze of Life

After a scandalous first exhibition in Berlin 1892, which was forced to close just a few days after its opening, the Norwegian painter Edvard Munch decided to form a narrative around his central motifs based on decisive moments in the life, love and death of a human. He hoped that the contextualization in a series would make it easier for people to understand and embrace his artistic mission. The series was called the "The Frieze of Life" and it includes his most iconic paintings from the 1890's and early 1900's.
