Edvard Munch: Color In Context

In the second half of the nineteenth century, advances in physics, electromagnetic radiation theory, and the optical sciences provoked new thought about the physical as well as the spiritual world. Aspects of that thought are revealed in Edvard Munch: Color in Context, an exhibition of 10 prints on loan from the National Gallery of Art, that considers the choice, combinations, and meaning of color in light of spiritualist principles. Informed by both popular manuals that explained the science of color and theosophical writings on the visual and physical power of color, Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863–1944) created works that are not just strikingly personal but charged with specific associations.
