The Haunted Picture: Edvard Munch across Time

with Dr. Patricia G. Berman, Theodora L. and Stanley H. Feldberg Professor of Art, Wellesley College

Thu, Jan 19, 6:30–7:30 pm

Leslie Cheek Theater

Edvard Munch had no direct students, but numerous artists have engaged with his work across time and space. This lecture examines Munch’s influence on New York artists—including Jasper Johns—in the 1970s and `80s while also considering the ways in which he continues to haunt canvases, prints, and screen culture.
