Having lost his mother at age five, Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944), was raised by an obsessively religious father from whom he “inherited the seeds of madness.” As an art student, he experimented with Naturalism and Impressionism and, after poor reviews, decided to explore his emotional and psychological state, thus moving toward Expressionism. His Sick Child (1886), a portrait of his dying sister, scandalized the public. Finally recognized, Munch exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris and avant-garde shows in Berlin and Vienna.
