Art History Book Club

 

Reading Woman on a Couch by Isaac Israels

 

 

The Art History Book Club

Interested in taking a deep dive into art history? This group meets monthly and discusses books by and about artists, collectors and collections, critics, art objects. If there is a variety of material about the selected artist or topic, members are encouraged to make their own reading selections. When the group meets they compare notes and have lively discussions.
 

Next Meeting: Thursday, June 20 at 12:30pm in The Art League Gallery

Selected Topic: Edvard Munch. 

Date: June 20th, at 12:30pm in the gallery

Selection: So much longing in so little space: The art of Edvard Munch by Karl Ove Knausgaard (One of Norway's most famous authors on his country's best known painter.)

RSVP here.

Notes on the reading:

Available in the DC and Fairfax County public libraries. It's a fairly new book so reserve your copy soon! This book is also available at Old Town Books located next to the Starbucks on King and Union St.

If you don't get this book or it doesn't appeal to you, just pick out something else. There are lots of books and online material on Munch out there. This book has very few pictures so it helps to have a book of images or online photos nearby while you read it.
A few other goodies:
 
This radio program from the BBC includes Knausgaard talking about Munch. 
 
 
From the British Museum blog on their Munch exhibit
 
 
 
And from the Smithsonian magazine
