An exhibition that brings together two of the 20th century's most prolific and inventive printmakers - Norwegian Edvard Munch and American Andy Warhol.

Co-curated by Dr. Patricia G. Berman and Pari Stave and organized in honor of the 150th anniversary of Munch's birth, the exhibition closely examines four graphic images produced by Munch at the turn of the century - The Scream, Madonna, The Brooch, Eva Mudocci, Self-Portrait with Skeleton Arm - and later revisited by Andy Warhol in a little-known but extraordinary series of prints from 1984.

Comprising over 30 original works from private and museum collections - some of which will be seen for the first time - the exhibition reveals remarkable affinities between the two artists: a preoccupation with themes of anxiety and alienation, ideal beauty, sex and mortality, and an ability to skillfully mine the iconic power of the image to craft their own mythic identities in self-portraits and in life.
