Edvard Munch – The Dance of Life

Munch - Dance of Life

Edvard Munch
The Dance of Life
1900
Oil on canvas
125.5 x 190.5 cm

Munch based this painting on mid summer celebrations at Aasgardstrand in his native Norway. The woman in white, who looks like the artist’s girlfriend Tulla Larson, symbolizes virginity, the woman in red stands for carnal knowledge and the figure in black, gazing jealously at the dancers, represents old age.
