Due to covid-19 the exhibition has been postponed to 2022.
The aim of this exhibition project is to highlight and explore the administration of Edvard Munch’s oeuvre in the period 1900-1916 by focusing on major patrons and collectors: Consul Christen Sandberg, Max Linde, Ernst Thiel, Rasmus Meyer, Axel Romdahl, Carl Steinbart, Hugo Perls and others. This includes works created in or with motifs from Munch’s places in Åsgårdstrand, Kragerø, Hvitsten and Moss, as well as from visits to Lübeck, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Bergen and Gothenburg.
The motifs include portraits (full-figure, double, family and group portraits), scenes and landscapes depicting the places Munch lived and especially winter landscapes.
Galleri F 15 has worked with Edvard Munch and his oeuvre on several previous occasions. The exhibition will be the third of a series of exhibitions exploring different themes and aspects of Munch’s work. It follows up on the exhibitions
