Edvard Munch: Self-Portrait in Hell

In Edvard Munch’s 1903 Self-Portrait in Hell, we see the naked artist shown with clarity in the center of the canvas. All else around him is murky, and dark, and creates a feeling of fearful uncertainty. Both the expression of suffering on the artist’s face and the yellowish coloration of the body shows an inflamed and sickly spirit. Munch produced this painting at the age of 40.

Edvard Munch’s Self-Portrait in Hell is in the Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway.
