THE SCREAM AND EDVARD MUNCH. MELVYN BRAGG AND DAVID JACKSON, DOROTHY ROWE AND ALASTAIR WRIGHT. IN OUT TIME. On Thursday 18 March 2010.
Available to listen tonight at BBC Radio 4, 21.30 Also I have tried to subscribe to the Podcast for IN OUR TIME, but so far nothing has downloaded to iTunes. I am hoping!
Fascinating programme. There is a good text on the BBC website and here is the link:
There is also a list of 4 books on the subject. I will definitely listen to the programme again, as what the contributors talked about was very interesting and told me a lot about Munch and the German art scene in particular, that I did not know.
His influence on art students of today, is touched upon, and also the way he stored his paintings outside, or with scant regard for their protection. He painted on cardboard sometimes and had little money at first to spend on paint - the old, old story!
