VMFA Lecture: The Haunted Picture: Edvard Munch Across Time

The lecture examines Munch’s presence in New York in the 1970s and ‘80s, while also considering the ways in which he continues to haunt canvases, prints, and screen culture.

By Dr. Patricia G. Berman, Theodora L. and Stanley H. Feldberg Professor of Art, Wellesley College

Edvard Munch had no direct students, but his work and legend gave rise to numerous artists who engage with his work across time and space. Jasper Johns is one of many artists for whom Munch’s work is and was in some way generative, on the basis of motifs, technical procedures, biography, or all three dimensions.

$8 (VMFA members $5) 

Educational programming for Jasper Johns and Edvard Munch: Love, Loss, and the Cycle of Lifeis generously supported by the Robert Lehman Foundation.
