Description: Treviso: Linea d'ombra, 2010. 29cm., hrdcover, 343pp., 180 color, 100 b&w illus. Exhibition held at Villa Manin, Passariano. Summary: For the first time in Italy, “Munch and the Spirit of the North. Scandinavia in the Second Half of the Nineteenth Century” aims to piece together a story that identifies the spirit of the North in painting in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. The exhibition, composed of approximately 120 paintings on loan from Scandinavian museums in particular, but also from several other European and American museums, focuses chiefly on landscapes, although it also features a good number of portraits and figural works. It is divided into five sections: the first four are dedicated to the national schools of the respective countries, while the final section concentrates on Edvard Munch, with approximately 35 works. It is thus a major exhibition within the exhibition, which examines Munch’s early works, influenced by the painting of the Norwegian artist Christian Krohg, from 1882–83, and his output over the subsequent two decades – the last of the nineteenth century and the first of the twentieth – which decreed his universal fame and created the “Munchesque” signature that characterises and confirms the same act of surrender to the endless space of the North that occurred in literature.
