Edvard Munch 150th Anniversary stamps from Norway

Norwegian Posten issued a set of stamps to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Edvard Munch (1863-1944), Norwegian painter and printmaker whose intensely evocative treatment of psychological themes built upon some of the main tenets of late 19th-century Symbolism and greatly influenced German Expressionism in the early 20th century. One of his most well-known works is The Scream of 1893.

Last year's sale of The Scream at Sotheby's in New York for $119.9 million reminded yet again that Edvard Munch is one of the world's most famous Norwegians.

The stamps feature the following masterpieces of Munch:

Kr 13.00: Detail from Self-portrait in front of the Wall (1926);

Kr 15.00: Detail from The Sick Child (1896);

Kr 17.00: Detail from Madonna (1895);

Kr 20.00: Detail from The Scream (1893);

Kr 20.00 (miniature sheet): The Sun (1911).
