The Munch Museum, opened in 1963, holds a unique position among museums dedicated to a single artist. In addition to managing an extensive and representative art collection covering the entire range of Edvard Munch’s works, the museum also possesses a wide range of other material such as sketches, letters, notebooks, photographs and other documentation of the master’s work. In this book some of the museum’s staff give an introduction to the museum’s collections, and present Edvard Munch’s life and work.
Arne Eggum has worked at the Munch Museum since its opening in 1963, and was the museum’s Director from 1996 to 2001. He has been responsible for a large number of exhibitions of Munch’s work, and has written numerous books and articles about him.
Gerd Woll was curator and later senior curator in the Munch Museum’s prints and drawings department from 1973. Since 2004 she has led a project to catalogue all his paintings.
Marit Lande was the head of the Munch Museum’s public relations department from 1977 to 2002. She has a special interest in making Munch’s life and work accessible to children and young people.
