Jasper Johns and Edvard Munch: Love, Loss, and the Cycle of Life

What is the connection between the work of Jasper Johns, one of America’s most renowned living artists, and Edvard Munch, the Norwegian painter many consider to be the father of Expressionism? A new exhibition that explores this question opens at VMFA in November. Curated by John Ravenal, Executive Director of the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Massachusetts and former Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at VMFA, Jasper Johns and Edvard Munch: Love, Loss, and the Cycle of Life presents more than 100 works by these two artists side by side to highlight shared themes and provide fascinating insight into the creative process.
