Tracey Emin on Her Man Munch

25 MARCH 2021 | LONDON

British artist Tracey Emin has long been an admirer of Edvard Munch whose raw emotion inspired her own use of painful experiences to create art. In this exclusive interview at her studio, Tracey’s gives her views on ‘Self-Portrait with Palette’ and ‘Summer Day’, two highlights of our upcoming auction Modern Renaissance: A Cross-Category Evening Sale (25 March London). Tracey also discusses David Bowie’s impact on her discovery of Munch, her Royal Academy exhibition ‘Tracey Emin / Edvard Munch: The Loneliness of the Soul’ and the monumental sculpture she has made for the new Munch Museum in Oslo.
