Out of all the places Edvard Munch lived and worked, Åsgårdstrand is probably the place where he left the biggest mark. Here you will find the only home preserved after his passing, and the landscape can easily be identified in his art.
Edvard Munch's life in Åsgårdstrand
Edvard Munch spent most of his time in Åsgårdstrand between 1889 and 1905. He continued to come back for longer and shorter periods of time after 1905, but not as often as before. The house continued to be in his ownership until he died in 1944.
