Motifs from Ekely
Munch's favourable working conditions at Ekely are reflected in a large and colourful production, inspired by his close surroundings.
Edvard Munch bought the property Ekely on the outskirts of Oslo in 1916, when he was 53 years old. It became his permanent residence the rest of his life – a home. At Ekely Munch painted the changing seasons in the lush garden and old knotty trees in the nearby woods. The interaction between man and nature is depicted in paintings of ploughing horses and harvest.
