But to me, Much is much more than the Stream – he is the essence of the 21st century self-exploration and doubt. His woodcuts show a whole gamut of personal emotions – and he uses the same wood cut over and over again to explore so many feelings merely through change of colour and slight modifications rto the cuts.

These articles show only a little of Munch art in pictures/prints. If you have time go and see the exhibition.

If not, you can get some idea of his prodigious output at:
