Munch in Moss 1913-1916
Gallery F 15 presents a new exhibition of Edvard Munch’s art, with a picky choice of works from the years when he lived in Moss. The exhibition offers a unique opportunity to re-experience Munch’s art from this period in its natural surroundings: the manor house at Alby, surrounded by the mild landscapes of Jeløya.
With this exhibition, Punkt Ø seeks to give the public a condensed total experience of the subjects that interested the artist, the portraits he painted, and the environment he found a place in. The exhibition focuses on the local and concrete and shows that Munch ‒ otherwise renowned for his dramatic depictions of gender relations ‒ could also describe more balanced and conciliatory aspects of the relations between men and women. These years on the Grimsrød estate in Moss were years of intimacy with nature and people, motifs Munch interpreted with painterly power and freedom.
