About Street in Asgardstrand

The artwork titled “Street in Åsgårdstrand” created by Edvard Munch in 1902 is an oil on canvas painting affiliated with the Expressionism movement. Its dimensions are 74.5 by 89 cm. As a genre painting, it depicts a scene of everyday life and is part of the Rasmus Meyer Collection in Bergen, Norway.

The painting shows a street scene in the coastal town of Åsgårdstrand in Norway. A young girl with blonde hair and blue dress is set in the foreground, looking directly at the viewer with a contemplative expression. Behind her, slightly blurred and out-of-focus, are children playing on the ground and adults walking down the street. The houses are painted in warm tones, with reds and oranges that contrast the cool blue hues of the sky and clothing of the girl. Munch’s expressive use of color and form communicates an atmospheric quality, imbuing the scene with mood and emotion. The brushstrokes seem to be loose and flowing, consistent with Expressionist techniques that emphasize the artist’s subjective experience over realistic representation.
