MASTERPIECES ON THE MOVE Mini Exhibition
Some of the titles have come into being more or less by chance, while others have been chosen carefully. A good example is Vampire, which Munch originally titled Love and Pain. After his friend, the Polish author Stanistaw Przybyszewski, referred to the picture as Vampire, Munch chose to use this title. Munch’s original title and Przybyszewski’s later retitling can in fact induce viewers to see the work in entirely different lights.
