My Thinner Edvard Munch

“A person himself believes that all the other portraits
are good likenesses except the one of himself.”
~ Edvard Munch

In the 150th anniversary year of his birth, Oslo will be celebrating the work and life of Edvard Munch. By chance, I have found a pen drawing, I made several years ago, based on a self-portrait of this great artist, considered a pioneer in the Expressionist movement of modern painting.

His face is thinner in my portrait, but drawing with a pen has limitations, and the impossibility of deleting the lines made is the main one. In any case, hope it works as my personal tribute to the figure of the celebrated Norwegian artist.

En el 150 aniversario de su nacimiento, Oslo celebra la vida y obra del gran Edvard Munch. Por casualidad, he encontrado un dibujo a bolígrafo que realicé, hace muchos años, basado en un autoretrato del artista, considerado un pionero del movimiento expresionista, dentro de la pintura moderna.

Lo cierto es que la cada de Munch es más delgada y estrecha en mi retrato, pero dibujar con boli tiene sus limitaciones, entre las que se encuentra la imposibilidad de borrar lo trazado. En cualquier caso, sirva como homenaje personal al pintor noruego.
