The Munch Museum (2)

Having written about the new Munch Museum in Oslo for the December issue of the Burlington Magazine, I was both interested and relieved to read Sue Prideaux’s commendation of it in Apollo (see below): interested because it it is good to be able to compare one’s response to that of someone who knows Munch’s work so well, has written his biography and, indeed, whose godmother, Henriette Olsen, sat to Munch for her portrait; and a bit relieved because I was worried that other critics were hostile to the building, whereas I, like Prideaux, was impressed by the great wealth of gallery space and the ways in which it is used to interpret Munch’s life.
