"Melancholy"

Edvard Munch - Oil On Canvas - 81 x 101 cm

famous painting Melancholy of Edvard Munch


Edvard Munch believed that humans are helpless in the face of love and death, his symbolist paintings often depicted emotions of despair and anxiety. Melancholy is part of a series that Munch worked on after his friend Jappe Nilssen encountered a heartbreak after getting tangled in a love triangle with Oda Krohg, a married woman. He paints Nilssen from in profile position, sitting in angst on the shores of Asgardstrand that is painted with undulating lines, subdued colours and flat shapes that emphasize the mood of the figure. In the far distance, there is a couple on the jetty about to get on a boat that is waiting for them in the water, a man with an oar walks towards them. The scene behind Nilssen could just be his own imagination, his mind creating images to perpetuate his sadness and helplessness, he faces away from them, unwilling to accept the union of his lover with her husband. The inspiration for the specific scene was inspired by a similar scene on a cloudy evening on the shore.
