There is a battle that goes on between men and women. Many people call it love. (Edvard Munch) A majority of the work by Edvard Munch showcases emotion more so than any true external view of the images which he was creating. Much of his work depicts life and death scenes, love and terror, and the struggle between a man and a woman. Emotions were depicted by the contrasting lines, the darker colors, blocks of color, somber tones, and a concise and exaggerated form, which depicted the darker side of the art which he was designing. These tones and shadows were used, to depict the emotions the images were feeling, which seemed to come from the deep seated feelings which Edvard Munch tended to keep in, when he was painting, and creating any art form that he worked on. Munch was also associated with the international development of Symbolism during the 1890s and recognized as a precursor of Expressionism, particularly in his paintings and woodcuts.
