A brief history of Munch

Slate has a brief guide to Edvard Munch today. If you’re in New York, MoMA has an exhibition of his work at the moment; if you’re in London, the Royal Academy of Arts has an exhibition of his self-portraits; and if you’re in Oslo, you’ve probably already seen enough of Munch’s stuff to last a lifetime. But now’s as good a time as any to nip on over to Slate to find out more, and to whet your appetite for the real thing.
