Edvard Munch, Starry Night
Louise Lippincott

March 1989
Paperback

Book Description
Of Edvard Munch's landscape paintings, Starry Night, executed in 1893, is one of the finest. It is the founding version of his later renditions wherein mood and content vary between two extremes: exultation in the beauty of a landscape he loved deeply and pessimism resulting from his sense of personal loneliness and artistic isolation. This well-illustrated monograph includes notes and bibliography as well as a color fold-out reproduction of Starry Night.

Book Review
The young Robert Louis Stevenson suffered from repeated nightmares of living a double life, in which by day he worked as a respectable doctor and by night he roamed the back alleys of old-town Edinburgh. In three days of furious writing, he produced a story about his dream existence. His wife found it too gruesome, so he promptly burned the manuscript. In another three days, he wrote it again. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was published as a "shilling shocker" in 1886, and became an instant classic. In the first six months, 40,000 copies were sold. Queen Victoria read it. Sermons and editorials were written about it. When Stevenson and his family visited America a year later, they were mobbed by reporters at the dock in New York City. Compulsively readable from its opening pages, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde...
