A retrospective of Norwegian artist Edvard Munch’s work spanning over six decades will open at New York City’s Met Breuer on November 15th. The show, formerly on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, uses one of Munch’s final works, Self Portrait: Between The Clock And The Bed as a lens through which to reasses his career. Featuring 43 of Munch’s works including pieces never before shown in the United States, the exhibition is sure to venture far beyond The Scream.

Haas, Senior Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, with Caitlin Haskell Associate Curator of Painting and Sculpture; Sheena Wagstaff, Leonard A.
