4 June - 12 September 2010. In what might seem a profoundly odd juxtaposition, this exhibition contrasts the work of Edvard Munch and Andy Warhol. Munch (1863 - 1944) is widely regarded as a leading exponent of Symbolism and a significant forerunner of Expressionism. He is known for his raw and sometimes shocking depictions of love, life, fear, death and melancholia, and is most famous for his painting 'The Scream'.
On the other hand, Andy Warhol (1928 - 1987) is famed for his mass-produced Pop Art screen prints of American celebrity and consumerism. Three years before Warhol died however, he made a series of prints based on Munch's paintings; these rarely-displayed images, now on show in the Louisiana, reveal surprising similarities between both artists.
