Edvard Munch | Paintings and Quotes

  • By painting colors and lines and forms seen in quickened mood I was seeking to make this mood vibrate as a phonograph does. This was the origin of the paintings in The Frieze of Life.
  • Attraverso l'arte cerco di vedere chiaro nella mia relazione con il mondo, e se possibile aiutare anche chi osserva le mie opere a capirle, a guardarsi dentro.
  • To die is as if one's eyes had been put out and one cannot see anything any more. Perhaps it is like being shut in a cellar. One is abandoned by all. They have slammed the door and are gone. One does not see anything and notices only the damp smell of putrefaction.

Munch’s lifelong obsession with loneliness and psychologically twisted love relationship began with this large picture.

Edvard Munch | Quotes / Aforismi

I was walking along a path with two friends - the sun was setting - suddenly the sky turned blood red - I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence - there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city - my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety - and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.

Quote of an entry in his Diary (22 January 1892), on the experience which inspired his famous painting, '(The Scream🎨)' ('Shrik'), originally titled: 'Der Schrei der Natur' ('The Cry of Nature')

Camminavo lungo la strada con due amici, quando il sole tramontò. Il cielo si tinse all'improvviso di rosso sangue. Mi fermai. Mi appoggiai, stanco morto a un recinto. Sul fiordo nero azzurro e sulla città, c'erano sangue e lingue di fuoco. I miei amici continuavano a camminare ed io tremavo ancora di paura e sentivo che un grande urlo, infinito, pervadeva la Natura. I colori hanno urlato.

Citazione di una voce del suo diario (22 gennaio 1892) sull'esperienza che ha ispirato il suo famoso dipinto "(The Scream🎨)" ("Shrik"), originariamente intitolato: "Der Schrei der Natur" ("The Cry of Nature")
