The tormented painter of ‘The Scream’—“I am sick…write as soon as possible”
Description  

ALS in German, one page, 5.5 x 7.25, no date. Boldly penned letter to an unnamed recipient, in part (translated): “I am sick…write as soon as possible.” In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature). Illness—both physical and mental—characterized much of Munch’s life and work. He was a sickly child and began to succumb to debilitating anxiety and alcoholism as he aged. Some of his most famous works address sickness directly, such as The Sick Child and Death in the Sick-Room, while his iconic The Scream is imbued with psychological anguish. An appealing, boldly penned example from this highly sought-after artist. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
