Munch, Edvard
(1863-1944)
   A Norwegian expressionist painter who from the age of60 onwards suffered from *scotomata and * metamorphopsias due to an intraocular haemorrhage. Reportedly, Munch made drawings of the effects of this intraocular condition and documented them with the aid of a grid of lines. It has been suggested that Munch's later style was inspired by these * sensory distortions.
