The infinite lives of Edvard Munch · Ivo de Figueiredo and Patricia Gray Berman
10 Novembre 2022
Meeting with two great specialists of Munch, this interview will aim to better identify the background of his creation, his state of mind, and to better understand his work in its subtleties.
Member of the Norwegian Academy, Ivo de Figueiredo is a Norwegian author whose biography of the playwright Henrik Ibsen was critically acclaimed. In his biography of Edvard Munch, commissioned by the Munch Museum in Oslo, he and Patricia Gray Berman, Munch's confidant and expert, give us their vision of the painter, with the conviction that the painter's art should not be reduced to his private life.
- Ivo de Figueiredo, historian and biographer of Edvard Munch
- Patricia Gray Berman, Professor of Art History, Wellesley College, Massachusetts
