The Herakleidon Museum Presents Exhibition "Edvard Munch, Beyond the Scream"
Edvard Munch, On the Waves of Love. Lithographic crayon and tusche, 1896, 41.7 x 51.8 / Π. 31 x 41.9.
ATHENS.- The Herakleidon Museum opened the exhibition "Edvard Munch, Beyond the Scream" which will be on display from November 26th, 2010 until February 27th, 2011 and includes 80 graphic works of Edvard Munch from the Collection of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art - Gift of Charles and Evelyn Kramer, New York. The exhibition is under the auspices of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the Municipality of the City of Athens and the City of Athens Cultural Organization (PODA); it also has the support of the Norwegian Embassy and the Norwegian Institute at Athens.

Many years ago, Charles and Evelyn Kramer built one of the most comprehensive collections of Edvard Munch’s graphic work, which they donated to the Tel Aviv Museum of Art (TAMA). Thanks to a close collaboration with and great support from Professor Mordechai Omer, Director and Chief Curator of TAMA, we are able to present today these 80 works. We cannot express enough our gratitude for allowing these precious and delicate works to travel to Greece for the benefit of our visitors. Besides which, twenty five years have passed since the last extensive exhibition of Munch’s graphic work was presented in Athens. A whole new generation of museum goers will now have the opportunity to admire in our museum some of the most stunning works on paper that Munch produced during his long artistic career. ~ Paul Fyros, Founder of Herakleidon Museum

Edvard Munch once said that “In my art I have tried to explain to myself life and its meaning”. Munch’s voyage into his soul has given the world unique masterpieces of art. The Kramer collection of his graphic work is one of the most important private collections of the artist’s works and I am looking forward to seeing it at the Herakleidon museum. ~ Sverre Stub, Ambassador of Norway
