Munch is my second biography in graphic novel form from SelfMadeHero following on from the life of Agatha Christie I reviewed last month Norwegian painter Edvard Munch 1863 1944 is of course best known for The Scream but I learned a lot about his work through this striking visual tour curated by illustrator Steffen Kverneland Much of the text accompanying Kverneland s images is from authentic primary sources Munch s diaries and letters his contemporaries responses to his art and so onMunch s mother died early in his life and sickroom and deathbed scenes were to permeate his work Disease and insanity and death were the black angels that stood by my cradle he wrote A mother who died early gave me the seed of consumption a distraught father piously religious verging on madness gave me the seeds of insanity His first solo show opened in Kristiania now Oslo in 1889 Three and a half years later scandal erupted when his exhibition in Berlin was closed down The establishment disapproved of the Impressionist influence in his work and thought he showed a lack of artistic techniue As it turned out having his show shut down was the best publicity he ever could have asked forKverneland shows different incarnations of Munch s most famous pieces such as Madonna The Girls on the Bridge and The Scream He also traces the painter s important relationships such as his friendship with playwright August Strindberg and his pursuit of the various women who inspired his nudes In 1895 the writer Sigbj rn Obstfelder gave a lecture on Munch s art His appreciation included the followingAs no other Norwegian painter Munch has focused on essential estions has caused the deepest subjects to iver Before one painted landscapes and everyday life Munch paints human beings in all their shapes even the beastly human He finds his subjects where the emotions are strongest Munch is one of the genuine artists who can shift boundariesThis is a visually remarkable book with various styles coexisting sometimes on the same page Sometimes Munch is portrayed like a superhero in a comic often with a hugely exaggerated chin other times the images are like photographs or nineteenth century portraits Pen sketches alternate with color spreads in which red orange sepia and flesh tones and black dominate Some of my most admired individual panels have angular faces drawn in almost kaleidoscopic fragments Strindberg s is the most frighteningly fractured face with triangles and trapezoids emphasizing his angry expressionThere s also a meta aspect to this work Kverneland depicts his travels with his friend Lars Fiske to sites associated with Munch again sing everything from black and white sketches to color photographs These were I m afraid my least favorite parts of the book the friends raunchy booze filled banter has not translated well and the style of some of their scenes is among the most cartoon ish Munch had become a monk whose life was devoted to art is one of the last lines of the graphic novel It s a nice summation of what has gone before with that wordplay especially remarkable given that this is a work in translation I haven t come away with a particularly clear sense of the trajectory of Munch s life but that s probably not the point of a deliberately splintered biography like this oneKverneland worked on the book for seven years First published in 2013 it won Norway s Brage Prize for Literature This is the fourth installment in SelfMadeHero s Art Masters series after Pablo Vincent and Rembrandt I can highly recommend it to you if you are already a fan of Munch s work However if like me you look to graphic novels to also tell you a good story you might come away slightly disappointedOriginally published with images on my blog Bookish Beck A straightforward tale that shows the brilliance of Munch and the brilliance of Steffen KvernelandI m a big fan of the Art Masters series Pablo Gauguin The Other World Art Masters Series and look forward to reading VincentThis series takes an artist and tells their own tale employing their own techniue to illustrate the panelsSome like Gauguin The Other World Art Masters Series have a straightforward style because Gauguin had one styleSome like Pablo were difficult because Pablo Picasso had so many stylesMunch by Steffen Kverneland tells the tale of Edvard Munch and it is partially a cartoon style with shades of Munch s backgrounds and often characters as wellOne of the many many things I loved about this book is that it is straightforward though in a niue wayIt tells the tale of Edvard Munch and wraps it in Kverneland s own tale of the 7

Munch Author Steffen KvernelandTyEdvard Munch as portrayed by Steffen KvernelandBasil FawltyIf you re not a fan of that sitcom this will not bother you but if you are it s kind of weird to see Basil Fawlty painting The Scream But the hell with it this book is wrongheaded but it s just great So 5 stars for Steffan AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH IT S A COMICS BIO OF EDVARD MUNCHGeddit cos The ScreamSteffen Kverneland s Munch pronounced Monk is an epic part biographypart art appreciationwhole mash note to the painter Edvard Munch There s plenty to like about the book like it s experimental approach mixing various styles and it really is beautiful to behold Kverneland is an enormously talented artist who took seven years to create this book and you ll learn plenty about the background to Munch s work particularly his paintings The Vampire The Frieze of Life and of course The Scream It s also sometimes dull a bit overlong and a lot meandering The framing device is Kverneland and his buddy Lars Fiske in 2005 visiting real life locations that influenced Munch s paintings which is the only intrusive part of the narrative from the author s perspective When he takes the reader through Munch s life he cites Munch his family friends acuaintances and colleagues directly rather than interpret it through his voice It s a good choice as we get to hear Munch s own voice though it becomes tiresome reading The Very First Christmas Stocking the Gifts of the 7 Coins uotes from the many many people who appear throughout and then having to glance to the bottom of the page to see who said it what their dates were and what they did Munch first became popular in Berlin where his artistic philosophy One should not paint as one sees but as one saw leads to controversy but establishes him an exciting new painter Besides being part of the intellectual bohemian scene Munch wasite the ladies man and a heavy drinker He moved around a lot but still managed to produce Twisted (LOST, uality work among them his most famous paintings And that s about it really It s not the most fascinating life to read about He drank a lot schmoozed with other artists slept with this woman drank a lot met some other artists slept with this woman repeat The stories behind The Vampire The Frieze of Life etc are pretty mundane while The Scream s background is abstract and probably has to do with his hectic lifestyle at the time On top of that a lot of this book sees Kverneland becoming too bogged down in detail which makes what s already a sluggish narrative even slow moving And while it is an informative read as a biography the timeline jumps around a bit too much leading to a skewed perspective The structure of the book essentially buildsp to Munch s masterpiece The Scream which he painted before The Vampire and others though we learn about the less famous works long before we get to The Scream The remaining years of Munch s life from roughly 1900 to his death in 1944 are rushed through in the scant few pages left before the book ends It s a very loose biography that mostly concerns itself with the artist s major works and little else besides But if the narrative itself is rambling and tedious the artwork than makes For the Love of Texas (The West Texans up for it My word this is a beautiful book Kverneland s approach is to switch between multiple artistic styles throughout from caricature to realist abstract even incorporating photos Some panels mirror the famous paintings some pages are stunningly painted some barely sketched and all of it is masterfully encapsulated within the comics format Appropriately for an appreciation of an Art Master the art is of the highestality Steffen Kverneland clearly has an enormous love of his subject but his expression of it is gracefully captured visually than with the written word Munch is a somewhat informative and Pirate Barbarian uneven read whose real draw is the inspired artwork that celebrates the artist s legacy 25 stars Phew What a tour de force This book was definitely too long and could have benefited from some heavy editing What also peeved me was the constant meta narrative with the author and his buddy having drunk discussions about Munch the alcoholism is strong with this one The art was excellent but the varying points of view from which Munch s life story was told were often confusing if you re not familiar with all of Munch s contemporaries and who is My biggest complaint and the reason for my low rating is this Despite having spent so much time with Munch so much time I feel like I still didn t reallynderstand him The idea I get of him from his paintings doesn t really correspond with the image the author conveyed actually I feel like I A Fearless Heart : Why Compassion is the Key to Greater Wellbeing understand Kverneland now better than Inderstand Munch and I had no interest in THAT Sure he keeps on pointing out Munch s losses etc but I wasn t FEELING any of his struggles and didn t nderstand him any better as a person as I would have from a Wikipedia article Was it Kverneland s art that kept it impersonal The text Probably a mixture of both Just pointing out Munch s angst in the meta discussions doesn t cut it I can see the similarities between Munch and Kverneland Obviously both have had a problem with alcohol and #women oh the subtle misogyny both are were definitely not happy people #oh the subtle misogyny both are were definitely not happy people are hard to like Only recommended if you re a Munch fanatic otherwise skip this and read p on him on Wikipedia I saw this in my local library and had to pick it p The idea of having a graphic novel biography is so great To see an artists life and career told with art itself is just the perfect tribute to what artists life and career told with art itself is just the perfect tribute to what person devoted their life to This graphic novel focuses on the life and career of Edvard Munch the artist most famously known for The Scream sing mostly Munch s own words I thoroughly enjoyed reading about his career and taking in the artistic interpretations of his life I learned that there is a whole series of these graphic novel artist bios called Art Masters I look forward to picking Red Now and Laters up. G som krever en kunstner som til de grader behersker både mediets billedkunstneriske aspekter og den spesielle fortellerteknikken som ligger i tegneseriens kraftVed siden av å være en glimrende innføring i Munchs liv og verk er boken et gruppeportrett av den kunstneriske bohemen fra Skandinavia ved århundreskiftet en periode der modernismen på mange måter ble skapt og definert av nordiske kunstnere Den er slik også en viktig kulturhistorisk påminnelse gjort med et fantastisk kunstnerisk oversku.
