Munch: Print exhibition National Gallery, Dublin

Today I went along to the National Gallery in Merrion Square, Dublin to see the exhibition of prints done by the Norwegian artist, Edvard Munch. It is on until December and I thought was well worth the visit. the ubiquitous 'The Scream' (lithograph)was there with it's lines vibrating!! Also 'Death and the Woman'(1895) and 'The sick child' (1896)( both lithographs) along with portraits of the poet, Stéphane Mallarmé, Swedish playwright, August Strindberg, and the philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche. My favourite print was his self portrait
