Thank You Norway: A Tribute to Edvard Munch


It's been forever since I posted anything related to art. It almost seems like it never happened at all. However, I can remember back to when I made that small praise of Goya. Click for GOYA

Now in the spirit of Scandinavia Week, things move onward, upward and onward, to Norway and the paintings of the Norwegian, Edvard Munch. Of course we have all seen "The Scream," and it's true that I first learned Munch's name from a list of most horrifying paintings. That allowed me to find many of his others. Here are a few, and....

Thank You Norway...Thank You for Edvard Munch.


Golgotha by Munch


Weeping Nude by Munch

This one just has some hidden darkness.


To conclude: Edvard Munch Self-Portrait


Overtime more will be added. This is it for now to conserve space.

QATFYG: What is the most horrifying painting you know?

Comments

  1. I was going to say Saturn Devouring His Son but I guess you already mentioned it. The Third of May is my favorite Goya painting, but it's not horrifying.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
