Edvard Munch

The Scream
www.moma.org
/

Edvard Munch’s most famous painting is “The Scream.” It depicts a skeletal figure holding his hands against his face in horror. This image has been reproduced and parodied the world over. But Edvard Munch's life and other works are largely unknown to the general public.

The North Carolina Museum of Art is trying to change that. It’s exhibiting "Edvard Munch: Symbolism in Print" through February. John Coffey, the curator at the North Carolina Museum of Art; and Sue Prideaux, author of "Edvard Munch: Behind the Scream" (Yale University Press/2007), join host Frank Stasio to discuss the life and works of Edvard Munch.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
Shawn Wen joined the staff of The State of Things in March 2012 and served as associate producer until February 2014.
