This landmark exhibition explores the late paintings of the powerful modern master as a starting point to reevaluate his entire career. Organized in partnership with the Munch Museum, Oslo, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the exhibition brings together approximately 45 of Munch's most candid and technically daring compositions to reveal a singular artist who is one of modernism's most significant figures. SFMOMA will be the first venue to present this exhibition.
Though his iconic images, “The Scream,” are among the most widely recognized artworks in popular culture, Edvard Munch has remained something of a mystery. This extensive exhibition featuring 44 works, including several from the artist’s own collection, aims to deepen our understanding of the innovative and mercurial 20th-century artist.
