In the exhibition titled “Edvard Munch and the Uncanny”, Leopold Museum showcases more than 200 works by Munch, Ensor, Goya, Böcklin, Gauguin, Moreau, Schiele and other artists of the 19th and early 20th century. “Symbols of the Subconscious“, “Dreams and Nightmares“, “Ghosts and Visions“ or “The Uncanny Home“ are themes of this show that invites the visitor to look into the question how the uncanny is depicted in the arts.

The Munch Museum in Oslo contributed 35 main works by its “hero” to this outstanding exhibition. The remaining exhibits come from international and Austrian museums, including paintings, drawings and prints by Odilon Redon, Max Klinger, Otto Modersohn, Fernand Khnopff, Victor Hugo, Franz von Stuck, Charles Meryon or Alberto Martini.
