KODE Art Museums of Bergen exhibits the second largest collection of Munch paintings in the world outside of Oslo. From an art historical perspective, the collection is unique because it exhibits works from all the major paradigms in Edvard Munch’s artistic career.

Among others they have many of the important paintings from the “Frieze of Life” – a series of paintings where Munch depicts the psyche of the modern human being. Munch himself described the “Frieze of Life” as the major work of his oeuvre. Jealousy, Melancholy, Women in Three Stages, Evening on Karl Johan and By the Death Bed are all from the “Frieze of Life”, and they are all exhibited together in the Rasmus Meyer Collection.

The scream of Bergen
The collection in Bergen consists of more than 100 paper works and 50 paintings. Most of the works are part of the collection of Rasmus Meyer, whom acquired a number of major works by Norwegian artists towards the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. Several of the paper works have not been available for the public in 20 years. One of the works is a unique version of Scream, which Munch drew with pen and ink. This smaller scale version of Scream is one of the jewels in the new Munch museum.

Guided tours in English are offered in the Munch-exhibition every Weekend at 12:00 in July and August. The Guided tours are included in the entrance ticket.
