Edvard Munch “Melancholy”
Oil on canvas 1892-1893, 64.5 cm x 96 cm,
NasjonalGalleriet, Oslo, Norway
A man's head is grouped with the rocks along the shoreline, with a distant group of figures beneath a sky not unlike the pattern found in Munch's famous picture "The Scream." This painting was based on similar ink drawing compositions by Munch made a few years earlier.
