Edvard Munch: Love and Angst
11-21st April, London https://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/exhibitions/munch.aspx
It’s the exhibition whoever invented the scream emoji has been waiting for. The British Museum stages a huge exhibition of Norway’s most famous painter, Edvard Munch. The show, which includes major loans from the Munch Museum in Oslo, will focus on the artist’s prints and his unique ability to crystallise intense human emotions like grief, sorrow, jealousy and desire – you know, the ones we felt long before we had the emojis to represent them.
