Exhibition Great Art On Screen - Munch 150

The movie was the same as seen on PBS. No new info. It only showed the few paintings that are most popular so you never saw any of the art that has not been collectively shown before. A waste of time. Boring! The approach to Munch's artwork was one dimensional.

Munch was marvelous

It was great seeing a world class artist exhibit presented by their country of origin. (Norway). I loved that the art work was exhibited without those tacky frames which normally accompany pre-modern works of art. From this film, I got a new sense that Munch was always attempting to express his feelings in his paintings. My only criticism was that the actor who portrayed Munch throughout his adult life needed to visibly age in the later years.

Edvard Munch lays out a life plan.

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. many Chagall, so far away....

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!!!!
