About

An original lithograph exhibition poster on wove paper after Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944) titled "LACMA (The Sin)", 1969. Edition size unknown. Produced for a special exhibition of Munch's work "Edvard Munch: Lithographs, Etchings, Woodcuts", at the LACMA January 28th - March 9th, 1969. Printed by Mourlot, Paris, France and published by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA in 1969. The image featured on this exhibition poster is Munch's 1902 lithograph edition "Die Sünde (Woman with Red Hair and Green Eyes, The Sin)". Reference: Schliefer No. 142; Woll, No. 198. Our exhibition poster example here: Sheet size: 30" x 20.75". Image size: 23.75" x 14". In excellent condition. "The Sin" was initially believed to be an image of Munch's ex-fiancée, Tulla Larsen, thus evoking their often tumultuous relationship. However, the emerald-eyed temptress of this dramatic lithograph has been identified instead as a professional model who posed regularly for the artist in his Berlin studio. Like many of Munch's images of women, she follows the popular fin-de-siècle trope of the femme fatale with her long tresses, blank stare, and full breasts enticing the male gaze, yet also connoting the potential for danger. The image makes reference to the Symbolist painter Franz von Stuck's celebrated 1893 painting The Sin, which depicts a figure in the same position and state of undress as in the Munch, but with dark hair and a large serpent wrapped around her torso. An undisputed master of the print medium, Munch made no fewer than 800 prints during his prolific career. His subjects were limited, however, to a smaller number of powerful images that he continually reworked in etching, lithography, and woodcut. His keen interest in technical experimentation, coupled with his use of simplified forms and expressionistic color, position him as an important progenitor of modernism. Edvard Munch (12 December 1863 – 23 January 1944) was a Norwegian painter and printmaker whose intensely evocative treatment of psychological themes built upon some of the main tenets of late 19th-century Symbolism and greatly influenced German Expressionism in the early 20th century. One of his most well-known works is The Scream of 1893. Born in 1863 in Löten, Norway, famed painter Edvard Munch established a free-flowing, psychological-themed style all his own. His painting "The Scream" ("The Cry"; 1893), is one of the most recognizable works in the history of art. His later works proved to be less intense, but his earlier, darker paintings ensured his legacy. A testament to his importance, "The Scream" sold for more than $119 million in 2012—setting a new record.
