So Much Longing in So Little Space. The Art of Edvard Munch, By Karl Ove Knausgaard

"Writers must not underestimate the painter’s labor and study, that effort which is so like an effort of thought and which allows us to speak of a language of painting.” This sentence from the French philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty might serve as an epigraph for a new book on the Norwegian painter Edvard Munch by the Norwegian writer Karl Ove Knausgaard.
