Few images in the history of art are as widely recognized as Edvard Munch's The Scream. It conveys its powerful message very directly so that the viewer requires no knowledge of the circumstances of its creation to derive meaning from it. In a lengthy introduction illustrated with photographs of the artist at work, and prints and paintings by Munch and artists who influenced him in his early years, the author tells the story of Munch's artistic development in the light of his unsettled childhood, overshadowed by the death of his mother and is followed by a selection of 60 of Munch's paintings and prints. Each is illustrated in large-scale full color with an accompanying text which explains the subject matter, symbolism and pictorial devices of each work. David Loshak's many years; study of the subject and his Scandinavian cultural heritage, will give pleasure to its readers for many years to come.
