19 September - 6 December 2009. The Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) first achieved international recognition in 1886 when he painted "The Sick Child". For over 100 years he has been to the forefront of the global art scene, with "The Scream" remaining his most famous piece.

His paintings explore human, psychological suffering, with the artist drawing on his own traumatic childhood for inspiration. The 40 prints featured in the National Gallery's latest exhibition come from Oslo's Munch Museum. His large woodcuts, printed in colour using an innovative technique, were an important influence on German Expressionism in the early 20th century.
