Edvard Munch is widely known for his iconic images of turn-of-the-century angst, pain and sorrow. The year 2013 marked the 150th anniversary of the artist’s birth, and institutions across the United States and Europe mounted more than a dozen Munch-related exhibitions (an equal number of catalogues and books also appeared), including two ambitious exhibitions of the graphic work put together by the Munch Museum in Oslo and the Kunsthaus Zürich.
