Edvard Munch. Nærbilde av et geni
Published by Sem & Stenersen Forlag, 2013
In 1944 Rolf E.
Stenersen wrote a biography of the world-renowned painter Edvard Munch, which
became an instant classic. Living up to its title – Edvard Munch. Close-up
of a Genius – presents a portrait that is so intimate, refreshingly honest
and revealing that the artist emerges from the pages. The Norwegian daily
Dagbladet wrote in 2004: “Spanning one hundred and fifty pages, it may well be
the best biography ever written in Norwegian. By any account, it is one of the
most personal, revealing and, not least, humorous books about a Norwegian.”
