The year 2013 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944) and the National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo, will commemorate the occasion with an exhibition of Munch prints.
Print production was a major element of Munch's extremely large overall oeuvre. Munch created his first print in 1894, and over the course of the remaining fifty years of his life, his print oeuvre grew to approximately 850 pieces.
This exhibition displays 34 prints from the NMWA collection, featuring early period works on the typical Munch themes of life, death and romantic love, such as The Sick Girl (1894), Madonna (1895) and Harpye (1899), along with his lithograph series Alpha and Omega (1908–09) based on his own strange tale, and Toward the Light (1914) showing new developments in his arts.

Lectures will be also held at a museum. Please visit each page for details.
