The works collected in the archive were created in the period from 1873 to 1943.
The Edvard Munch Museum in Oslo published online archive of the artist’s graphics: the collection totals about 7,600 works and includes children’s drawings, book illustrations, cartoons and sketches made by Munch in different years.
As The Art Newspaper writes, the museum began digitizing the artist’s works several years ago, so that those of them, in respect of which the copyright period expires, became available to people around the world. 90% of the works in the archive are part of the collection of the museum itself, the rest were provided by other institutions.
“Munch’s drawings are the basis of his work,” they say in the museum. — He drew almost always and everywhere: during travel, in a cafe, in a cabaret, on the street, at home and, of course, in his studio. The heroes of his work are family members and friends, representatives of various strata of society. To make this file public is very important; it allows you to immerse yourself in the creative process of Munch.
