Contemporary Art Works by Theresa - Morning Girl at The Bedside

Morning Girl at The Bedside
(After Edvard Munch)

Medium:  Watercolor and Graphite Pencil

All paintings done after one of the Great Masters is done only for my own personal growth.  

Edvard Munch is best known as being a Norwegian born, Expressionist painter.  Edvard's mother died while Edvard was quite young, and he was raised by his father.  Edvard's father suffered of mental illness and this played a role int he way he and his siblings were raised.  Their father raised them impounding fears of hell, and other deep seated issues, which is part of the reason why (most) of the work of Edvard Munch took a deeper tone.

Edvard Munch's most famous painting is "The Scream."  Most of his work does showcase emotion more often than not.  Which is why, when I found this painting it was hard for me to believe he was the artist.
