The angst in Oslo


Edvard Munch grew up and started out as a young artist in Oslo. As an adult his relation to the city became strained, and Oslo housed some of his harshest critics and fiercest rivals.

Oslo ended up serving as the backdrop of some of Munch's most angst-filled paintings, such as Scream and Evening on Karl Johan. But he also made lively renditions of the bohemian life at Oslo's Grand Café in the 1880s and harmonic paintings of the inner Oslo fjord and starry nights above his estate at Ekely.
