Edvard Munch

The original painting that inspired this print had a perplexing effect on its viewers. Four girls appear on a bridge, standing close to one another and peering out over the water that belies the popular Norwegian resort Aasgaardstrand. The foremost figure is turned toward the viewer, nearly faceless with no distinguishable features. Her ambiguity implants an eeriness in the scene. The bridge trails off, swerving right out of the frame just below a twilight-toned sky.
