Description

The exhibition Masters meet juxtaposes Munch’s artworks with Ibsen’s drama, and initiates a dialogue between the two.

Edvard Munch and Henrik Ibsen are two of Norways greatest artists. Both have had a profound impact on international art. They never became close friends, but Edvard Munch was a huge admirer of Ibsen, and Ibsen appreciated and suppported the young artist.

They are linked by several portraits Munch made of the playwright and by other motifs in Munch's art that are inspired by Ibsen’s plays. “When I read Ibsen I’m reading about myself,” Munch said. Peer Gynt, Ghosts, When We Dead Awaken and John Gabriel all appealed to the soul of the painter, sometimes so strongly that self-portraits emanated from Ibsen’s stage characters. They also worked with many of the same themes, pertaining to the many mysteries of the human soul.
