Edvard Munch once said, “My pictures are not art, but life itself.” Known as a deeply psychological painter, Munch captured emotion like no other artist. A testament to this unparalleled quality is his colourfully saturated work, Pikene på broen (The Girls on the Bridge), to be offered in Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening sale on 14 November. Ahead of the sale, discover how Munch, singular in his technique and spirit, inspired artists across many generations.
