Fear, desperation, and death: Painting as an act of self-liberation For Edvard Munch (1863-1944), painting was an act of self-liberation. His treatments of fear, desperation, and death still exert a powerful visual and psychological effect on modern viewers. Of all Munch’s paintings, "The Scream" (1893), representing a figure tortured by horror, is the most well-known-and certainly one of the most expressive.
The artist reflected his innermost feelings in his work: "In reality, my art is a free confession, an attempt to clarify to myself my own relation to life..." Although Edvard Munch cannot be clearly identified with any single movement, he is deemed a pioneer of Expressionism. About the Series:

I painted from memory without adding anything, without the details that I no longer saw in front of me. This is the reason for the simplicity of the paintings, their obvious emptiness. I painted the impressions of my childhood, the dull colours of a forgotten day." Edvard Munch. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_3822859710
