Edvard Munch was associated with Die Brücke (The Bridge) and is the most famous member of that group of Expressionist artists. This is the first work executed by Munch after his nervous breakdown in the autumn of 1908, while a patient at Dr. Jacobson's clinic in Copenhagen. Paul Cassirer was an important German art dealer, who was instrumental in promoting various Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Expressionist artists, including Van Gogh, Cezanne, Manet and Munch, among many others.
