Edvard Munch | Symbolist / Expressionist painter


Edvard Munch, (born December 12, 1863, Löten, Norway - died January 23, 1944, Ekely, near Oslo), Norwegian painter and printmaker whose intensely evocative treatment of psychological themes built upon some of the main tenets of late 19th-century Symbolism and greatly influenced German Expressionism in the early 20th century.
His painting The Scream, or The Cry (1893)🎨, can be seen as a symbol of modern spiritual anguish.

Edvard Munch | The Scream / L'urlo, 1893


The Scream is the best known and most frequently reproduced of all Edvard Munch’s (1863-1944)🎨 motifs.
With its expressive colours, its flowing lines and striking overall effect, its appeal is universal.
Despite radical simplification, the landscape in the picture is recognisable as the Kristiania Fjord seen from Ekeberg, with a broad view over the fjord, the town and the hills beyond. In the background to the left, at the end of the path with the balustrade that cuts diagonally across the picture, we see two strolling figures, often regarded as two friends whom Munch mentions in notes relating to the picture.

Dietz Edzard | Romantic impressionist painter


Dietz (Dietrich Hermann) Edzard (1893-1963) was a German🎨 Impressionist and Modern painter.
The full gamut of this remarkable painter’s talent was shown in florals and figures, scenes from the theater, scenes from cafes and beaches as well as portraits, all characterized by the wonderfully subtle color and glowing light, which are so much a part of Edzard’s special fascination.
For biographical notes -in english and italian- and other works by Edzard see:

"Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul; on which they mightily fasten, imparting grace, and making the soul of him who is rightly educated graceful, or of him who is ill-educated ungraceful". ~ Plato

Canadian Artists | Sitemap


Canadian art refers to the visual (including painting, photography, and printmaking) as well as plastic arts (such as sculpture) originating from the geographical area of contemporary Canada.
Art in Canada is marked by thousands of years of habitation by First Nations Peoples followed by waves of immigration which included artists of European origins and subsequently by artists with heritage from countries all around the world.
The nature of Canadian art reflects these diverse origins, as artists have taken their traditions and adapted these influences to reflect the reality of their lives in Canada.
