Academy Art Museum presents Edvard Munch, Color in Context Prints

July 28, 2018 - October 14, 2018

Academy Art Museum will feature the prints of Edvard Munch, Color in Context from the National Gallery of Art.

In the second half of the nineteenth century, advances in physics, electromagnetic radiation theory, and the optical sciences provoked new thought about the physical as well as the spiritual world. Aspects of that thought are revealed in Edvard Munch: Color in Context, an exhibition of 10 prints on loan from the National Gallery of Art, that considers the choice, combinations, and meaning of color in light of spiritualist principles.

The exhibition is curated by Jonathan Bober, Andrew W. Mellon Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings, Department of Prints and drawings, National Gallery of Art, Washington, and Mollie Berger, his Curatorial Assistant.
