WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Wednesday, Aug. 30, in conjunction with the Clark Art Institute's major summer exhibition, "Edvard Munch: Trembling Earth, Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs" Anne Leonard presents the Clark's full set of works on paper by this Norwegian artist.
The talk takes place at 1 pm in the Manton Study Center for Works on Paper, which houses the Clark's collection of more than 6,500 prints, drawings, and photographs.
In this final installment of the Works on Paper Highlights Talk Series, Leonard examines how Munch's prints challenged conventional ideas about the portrayal of the human figure, the role of color, and the primacy of materials in realizing an artistic vision.
