Royal Academy – Tracing Edvard Munch’s influence on women artists

Tracing Edvard Munch’s influence on women artists

With less than a month until our new exhibition, Tracey Emin / Edvard Munch: The Loneliness of the Soul, why not prepare yourself for the highly anticipated show by taking a deep dive into Munch’s artistic legacy.

From Tracey Emin to Louise Bourgeois, in her article art historian Patricia Berman discusses how, despite having the reputation of being one of modern art’s foundational misogynists, Edvard Munch had a surprising influence on generations of women artists.

With preparation underway for the opening of the exhibition, we’re so excited to share it with our Friends. As ever, we are extremely grateful to you for supporting us through this time. Thank you.

Tracey Emin / Edvard Munch open 15 November. Friends of the RA can see for free.
