Norwegian artist Edvard Munch's paintings are thought to have expressed his deepest and most painful feelings. This video features many of his paintings and drawings as it tries to help viewers understand Munch's inner world. He was an anxious youth, fearful of many things after both his mother and sister died. Several art experts share their thoughts about how those early events inspired Munch to create lifeless or frightened people in some of his works. However, many of Munch's later works reveal brightly colored landscapes and other subjects that indicate he found greater inner peace as he grew older. A rich array of his drawings, paintings, and lithographs are shared during this film.
