Munch ExhibitionPosted: 27.09.2009
There’s currently an exhibition of Edvard Munch’s prints on at the National Gallery. It’s a brilliant exhibition, which showcases Munch’s continual innovation with printmaking – he used a variety of different techniques, including etching, lithography and drypoint. The prints are on loan from the Munch museum and the exhibition is the largest display of the Norwegian artist’s work that has ever been shown in Ireland. It features prints of the artist’s best known work, including The Scream, Madonna and The Sick Child. There are also some of his woodcuts on display, including The Girls on the Bridge.
It costs €5 (or €3 concessions) to see the exhibition, but in some sort of recession-fuelled fit of generosity, the National Gallery are allowing people in for FREE on Mondays. It runs until the 6th December, so there’s plenty of time to go and see it.
