    As perhaps no other painter of his generation, Edvard Munch (1863–1944) gave radically innovative form to the traumas of the modern psyche. That he did so in perfect sync with the dawning media age in which he lived is the intriguing premise of one of the largest Munch exhibitions ever assembled in France. Including some 140 diverse works of painting, drawing, photography, film, and sculpture, this exhibition explores Munch’s later career, his twentieth-century output. An unexpected agility with the camera and a propensity for filmic and theatrical poses in his paintings underscore his enthrallment with the period’s new image technologies.
