Э́двард Мунк — норвежский живописец и график, театральный художник, теоретик искусства. Один из первых представителей экспрессионизма. Его творчество повлияло на современное искусство. Творчество Мунка охвачено мотивами смерти, одиночества, но при этом и жаждой жизни.


„Часто я просыпался ночью, оглядывал комнату и спрашивал себя: «Не в аду ли я?»“

„В своём искусстве я попытался объяснить себе жизнь и её смысл. Я также попытался помочь другим разъяснить свою жизнь.“


„Мать, которая умерла молодой, передала мне склонность к туберкулёзу, а легко возбудимый отец, набожный до фанатизма потомок старинного рода, посеял во мне семена безумия… С момента моего рождения, ангелы тревоги, беспокойства и смерти были всегда рядом… Часто я просыпался ночью, оглядывал комнату и спрашивал себя: «Не в аду ли я?»“

„Камера никогда не будет конкурировать с кистью и палитрой. До тех пор, как фотография не будет принята в рай или ад.“

„Нужно прекратить писать вяжущих женщин и читающих мужчин. Я буду писать людей дышащих, чувствующих, любящих и страдающих. Люди должны проникаться святостью этого и снимать перед картинами шляпы, как в церкви.“

„From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them, and that is eternity.“

„From the moment of my birth, the angels of anxiety, worry, and death stood at my side, followed me out when I played, followed me in the sun of springtime and in the glories of summer. They stood at my side in the evening when I closed my eyes, and intimidated me with death, hell, and eternal damnation. And I would often wake up at night and stare widely into the room: Am I in Hell?“

„My fear of life is necessary to me, as is my illness. Without anxiety and illness, I am a ship without a rudder. My art is grounded in reflections over being different from others. My sufferings are part of my self and my art. They are indistinguishable from me, and their destruction would destroy my art. I want to keep those sufferings“


„I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.“

„I felt as if there were invisible threads connecting us - I felt the invisible strands of her hair still winding around me - and thus as she disappeared completely beyond the sea - I still felt it, felt the pain where my heart was bleeding - because the threads could not be severed.“

„The camera will never compete with the brush and palette until such time as photography can be taken to Heaven or Hell.“

„Your face encompasses the beauty of the whole earth. Your lips, as red as ripening fruit, gently part as if in pain. It is the smile of a corpse. Now the hand of death touches life. The chain is forged that links the thousand families that are dead to the thousand generations to come.“


„Without anxiety and illness I should have been like a ship without a rudder.“

„Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye... it also includes the inner pictures of the soul.“

„I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.“

„From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that ia eternity.“
