Edvard Munch : Angst-ridden artist or canny businessman ? | The Independent

Edvard Munch : Angst-ridden artist or canny businessman ? | The Independent | Looks - Photography - Images & Visual Languages | Scoop.it

 

One of the most celebrated paintings by Edvard Munch will go on display alongside a later version of it this month, as part of a major new exhibition of the Norwegian's work.

"Mr Cullinan said it was impossible to tell whether Munch reworked so many of his paintings because he was trying to work through some kind of psychological trauma or obsession, or whether he was just a "very canny businessman", replacing pieces that had been sold. "Probably both are true, but they are contradictory, which is interesting. [...]"

et fait son grand retour sur Internet

"En 25 ans, il a bien changé. Le GIF, qui fête son quart de siècle cette année, a été le format précurseur, le roi de l'Internet sans vidéo, avant de devenir le vestige kitsch du Web des années 1990. La traversée du désert numérique a été longue, mais en 2012, le GIF reprend le pouvoir et n'a plus grand chose à voir avec les images pixelisées de l'époque des pages personnelles."

Twisting people's image  -or not.

 

"When I first saw Joe Klamar’s pictures of US Olympic athletes, I didn’t understand what all the fuss was about. [...] Joe brushes off most of the criticism, but wanted to make clear that he had no intention of casting the athletes – for whom he had the highest regard – in a negative light. “My only goal was to show them as interesting, as special people who deserve their fame because they are the best as what they do. And for the little time we had together, they were willing to work with my concepts. [...] I work for a news agency and I wasn’t taking pictures for a Nike ad.”"
