Psyche, Symbol and Expression
Distributed for McMullen Museum of Art, Boston College
Published in conjunction with a major exhibit at the McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College, Edvard Munch: Psyche, Symbol and Expression includes nine essays from scholars representing a variety of disciplines. From themes of love, sexuality, gender and anxiety to comparisons with Ibsen and Kierkegaard, the catalog explores the meanings of Munch's imagery, his sources in Symbolist art, and his legacy for German Expressionism within the context of his contemporaries' developments in psychology, literature, and philosophy. The volume of over 200 pages includes more than 60 color plates and 130 black and white illustrations, many from rarely seen private collections and some never exhibited before.
