Edvard Munch was an Expressionist painter best known his iconic painting titled The Scream. The Norwegian artist explored the human psyche to create symbolic scenes. Munch’s artworks mainly captured human emotions like love, fear, anxiety, and death. The upcoming Sotheby’s evening sale will feature artworks by Old Masters and 21st-century icons. One highlight is Summer Day or Embrace on the Beach (The Linde Frieze) by Edvard Munch. The artist’s patron, Dr. Max Linde, commissioned the idyllic beach landscape frieze. It shows a group of boats sailing on summer waters. A group of young girls act as the centerpiece of the painting. Munch later added an embracing couple that evoked his Frieze of Life artworks.
The upcoming auction will also showcase Pablo Picasso’s Femme assise dans un fauteuil, a wartime portrait of Picasso’s famous muse Dora Maar. The formal portrait is part of Picasso’s late 1930s and 1940s Seated Women still life series. Maar’s larger-than-life seated portrait is in the same style as Picasso’s wartime artworks.
The auction also presents an acrylic painting titled Tall Dutch Trees After Hobbema (Useful Knowledge) 2017 by David Hockney. The piece was inspired by Meindert Hobbema’s famous 1689 artwork titled The Avenue at Middelharnis.
