Exhibition: Munch - 150

My game plan for Thursday is to see the second in the three films this year about famous Exhibitions.  In Calgary it is showing at two theatres, Scotia Bank Theatre Chinook and Crowfoot Cineplex.

The advertisement says, "This year, all of Norway celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944), one of the towering figures of modern art. This exhibition is already being hailed a "once-in-a-lifetime show". Global interest is huge - not least as a result of one of his four paintings of The Scream having recently set a public art auction record of $120 million. Many know Munch as the man who painted The Scream, but his complete works are remarkable and secure his place as one of the greatest artists to have ever lived."

If you have a lot of time on your hands,  here is the 47 minute utube on The Scream  called Munch-Private Life of a Masterpiece.

  1. Did you make it? Alex, Duncan and I went: bribery is, as ever, the perfect tool "come to the movie and I wil quiz you after... .50 cents a question for up to 20 questions." Both boys made their $10 off the movie. Did you have a favourite painting or quote?
