Edvard Munch

Munch, decadence – and Jæger

PICTURE ART: Edvard Munch described man's basic existential conditions: loneliness, fusion fantasies and an ecstasy that ends in vampirism and screams. But was Hans Jæger the source of inspiration for "Scream"? This essay looks at both love entanglements, naturalism and decadence – from Kristiania and Berlin.
