Wolfram Hempel wrote on May 23, 2001: This picture is just one of many, Munch painted about jealousy… he was very interested in the experience of these feelings. So he allowed his wife, for example, to stay with other men, just to discover the emotion of jealousy. Another one of his jealousy-pictures, which is located in Frankfurt, Germany, is much more interesting than this! It«s in a kind of electrifying blue, which you normally would take for showing faith… To understand what«s the deeper content of these pictures, you have to know about the life of Munch… because the most important question of this picture is… is Munch one of the people in there… maybe the jealous one… maybe it«s his rival, in fighting for a woman’s heart, the Polish writer Stanislaw Przybyszewski… but it«s more likely that this is Munch himself because Przybyszewski finally succeeded. edvard-munch.com

mis-shapes in half-kilo boxes, I sell dreams, small comforts, sweet harmless temptations
to bring down a multitude of saints crashing among the hazels and nougatines.
