Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Norwegian Great Artist - Edward Munch Painting Gallery

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 10:30 PM
Munch was one of the key artists in overthrowing the idea that painting is concerned fundamentally with imitating natural appearances. He depicted man's inner life with an intensity that at times approached frenzy, and his greatest works treat overpowering emotions such as fear and sex (these two often combined) with unprecedented psychological conviction and subtlety. The Scream is the most famous of all his works and the prime example of how he abandoned naturalism to gain emotional impact, and works such as Puberty and Anxiety show how poignantly and eloquently he portrayed the mental conflicts that beset mankind.

After he recovered from a nervous breakdown in 1908, Munch's work became much less introspective. He painted the working people of Norway with great vigour, his landscapes show a new love of Nature, and in his murals for Oslo University he proved himself one of the most glorious decorative artists of the 20th century. 

The Great Artist Edvard Munch Painting “The Sick Child” 1885-86 47' x 46 ¾ National Gallery, Oslo
This painting, of which Munch made several other versions, was inspired by his childhood experiences of sickness and death. Detail is reduced to a minimum, and the eye is immediately drawn to the figure of the child whose pale face contrasts with her red hair. We see both the yearning in the child's eyes and the mother's pain. 

The Great Artist Edvard Munch Painting “Puberty” 1893-59" x 433" National Gallery, Oslo
The awakening of sexual feelings was one of Munch's recurring themes. Adolf Paul, a member of Munch's circle in Berlin, described the work in progress: 'On the edge of the bed a naked girl was sitting. She did not look like a saint, yet there was something innocent, coy and shy in her manner . . . these qualities prompted Munch to paint her.'
The Great Artist Edvard Munch Painting “The Scream” 1893 36x 29 National Gallery, Oslo
'One evening', wrote Munch, 'I was walking along a path, the city on fjord below. I felt tired and ill. . The sun was setting and the clouds turning blood-red. I sensed a scream passing through Nature; it seemed to me that I heard the scream. I painted this picture, painted the clouds as admit blood. The colour shrieked.'

The Great Artist Edvard Munch Painting “Anxiety” 1894 37' x 28 ¾ Munch Museum, Oslo
In the 1902 Berlin Secession exhibition, Munch hung a series of his paintings around four walls of the entrance hall to form his Frieze of Life. Anxiety hung on the same wall as The Scream, a wall representing 'Fear of Life'. 'There was a symphonic effect', wrote Munch, 'it made a great stir a lot of antagonism and a lot approval.
The Great Artist Edvard Munch Painting “The Dance of Life” 1899-1900 49 ½ x 75" National Gallery, Oslo
This is one of the pictures that made up Munch's Frieze of Life, an ambitious series of works that never had a definitive form. 'The frieze is conceived', he wrote, 'as a series of paintings which together present a picture of life. Through the whole series runs the undulating line of the seashore. Beyond that line is the ever-moving sea, while beneath the trees is life in all its fullness, its variety, its joys and sufferings.' Here the dancing figures represent physical desire, but in the midst of passion there is loneliness, and the mournful figure on the right suggests the transitoriness of all feelings.

The Great Artist Edvard Munch Painting “The Sun” 1909-11 178" x 310" Oslo University
Munch's huge murals in the Great Hall of Oslo University were the greatest public commission of his career and he responded with work of inspired boldness. The murals represent the powerful forces of eternity, and here the sun is portrayed as the source of life, its rays illuminating the sea and the rocky landscape of the Kragero fiord.
The Great Artist Edvard Munch Painting “Winter in Kragero” 7972 51 ¼   X 51 ½ Munch Museum, Oslo
When he returned to Norway in 1909, after living mainly in Germany since 1892, Munch spent much of his time at Kragero and he painted some splendid pictures of its rough coastal scenery. This is perhaps the most monumental of them, the vigorous composition dominated by the magnificent form of the pine tree.

The Great Artist Edvard Munch Painting “Workers Returning Home” 1915 79 ½ x 90 ½ Munch Museum, Oslo
This is generally regarded as the most commanding of the series of pictures of workers that Munch painted around this time. Although he was not a politically militant artist, he identified strongly with the working class. He must have been familiar with such scenes since his youth in Grunerlokka, when he lived near a large sailcloth factory.
The Great Artist Edvard Munch Painting “The Lonely Ones” c. 1915 39 x 51 Munch Museum, Oslo
Munch often reworked his compositions over a long period and he had painted a similar picture 40 years earlier, although here the colours have a new electrifying quality. Figures standing on the seashore were one of his favourite themes, suggesting the insignificance and insecurity of man against the magnitude of Nature, and often conveying a sense of isolation and melancholy.
