Munch exhibited an earlier version of this work, “The Voice / Summer Night,” in 1893 to accompany a series called “The Frieze of Life.”
This nonchalant beauty in the foreground? Milly Thaulow, Munch’s cousin’s wife, who took his virginity at 22. YEESH, I bet Munch’s family get togethers were awkward as hell. Explains why she looks sinful as all get out though. Get it, girl!
