Jorn + Munch (Hardcover) (Stian Gru00f8gaard & Gerd Presler & Knut Stene Johansen)
About this item
Jorn + Munch is the first publication to examine the enduring impact Edvard Munch (1863–1944) had on Asger Jorn (1914–1973). In Munch’s later works, Danish artist Jorn discovered an artist with a direct, spontaneous, and raw form of expression. Already influenced by surrealism's unprompted painting style, Jorn was naturally drawn to Munch’s similarly unbridled compositions. In particular, Jorn was interested in Munch's use of intense colors and his gestural application of paint in the later works. From the middle of the 1940s, and for many years after that, Munch is shown to be a challenging and important reference point for Jorn's own body of work.
