The Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is regarded as a pioneer in the Expressionist movement in modern painting. At an early stage Munch was : in Germany and central Europe as one of the creators of a new epoch. Munch’s art from the 1890s is the most well known, but his later work is steadily attracting greater attention.

 1908-09 Alpha and Omega:

During his eight-month stay at the sanatorium of Dr Daniel Jacobsen in Copenhagen, Munch converted his room into a studio and developed a new, extroverted and more expressive style. This period saw the creation of his chef d'oeuvre, Alpha and Omega, a series of 22 lithographs and a printed prose poem (not all here):
