Stunning images. Well narrated. Interesting insights into the works of art and Munch's life. The introductory film/music was an unexpected bonus. For anyone interested in art and art history.

This is a great art documentary! The person playing Munch did such a good job. It was a good balance of his life story and his art. The art expert's commentary was insightful. I love this series on art. It is so hard in our sports and entertainment driven world to find places one can be exposed and learn about the different arts. Thank you for bringing this series to us. Munch 150 was fantastic!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this exploration of Munch's life and art. He is so much more than "The Scream" but since most of his work resides in Norway, the average art lover would be unlikely to discover that. It was a perfect blend of biography and art history!
I am very excited to see "Vermeer" in October, and it remains my fondest hope that a visit will be made to the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.....so many Chagall, so far away....
