Centre Pompidou Exposición Edvard Munch.

Se está celebrando en el Centro Pompidou de Paris una exposición sobre Munch en la cual dedican un pequeño apartado a sus fotos y la relación que tienen con algunos de sus cuadros.
Se puede ver un texto amplio de presentación de la exposición, en ingles, en Munch

.................Edvard Munch was one of a generation of artists – that of Pierre Bonnard, Édouard Vuillard, Félix Vallotton, Alfons Mucha, Fernand Khnopff, Franz von Stuck and a few others – all born around 1860, who reached a first stylistic maturity in the last two decades of the 19th century, just as amateur photography was really taking off. It was in fact in the 1880s, with the development of a new light-sensitive medium in the gelatin-silver emulsion and the whole technological revolution that followed from it, that photography became much more user-friendly, and the number of amateur photographers began to grow as never before. This was the first great democratisation of photography. Despite the very great differences between them as painters, Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton, Mucha, Khnopff, Stuck and Munch thus all shareone thing: they all at one point or another, made use of the camera – to record the position of a model, to take a visual note, to make a self-portrait, or to produce mementos of holidays or family occasions. ..................


A la vista de las fotos no parece que fuera un gran fotógrafo pero sí que tuviera una idea muy exacta de la utilidad que tenía para su faceta de pintor


Recordar que, como casi todos los museos, en el Centro Pompidou se puede ver un catálogo on line. En él figuran numerosas fotos de grandes fotógrafos.
