In this episode of Expert Voices, Vice Chairman Simon Shaw dissects an exquisite nude by Edvard Munch. A passionate photographer, Munch constantly pushed the boundaries of painting by experimenting with the novel medium. Executed in 1916, Munch’s scene appears to be remarkably intimate, as the painter goes beyond the photograph to paint the invisible – or a new reality – on canvas. Standing Nude will be offered as a highlight of Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Evening Sale in New York.
