About Dagny Juel Przybyszewska

The artwork “Dagny Juel Przybyszewska” by Edvard Munch, dating back to 1893, is an oil painting on canvas, measuring 148.5 x 99.5 cm. Reflecting the Expressionism art movement, this portrait is currently housed at the Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway.

The painting depicts a female figure, presumably Dagny Juel Przybyszewska, standing against a dark, textured background that is characteristic of Munch’s style. The subject’s visage is rendered with a soft luminosity, her skin tone standing out against the deep blues and blacks that envelop her. The subject’s expression is calm and contemplative, with a hint of a gentle smile playing across her lips, giving her a serene and approachable quality. Her attire is dark, blending into the background, but her form is still discernible due to the contrast created by the lighter tones of her face and hands. The brushwork appears fluid and somewhat loose, capturing the emotional state rather than precise physical detail. This piece is a quintessential example of Munch’s expressionistic approach to portraiture, where the mood and psychological state of the subject are as significant as their physical appearance.
