Edvard Munch Art Analysis

Artnome provides one-of-a-kind analytical insights on the world's most important art and artists for collectors, museums, and educational institutions. Our analysis looks at the complete inventory of an artist's works to provide moneyball-like analysis and context that was previously impossible. In addition to the free report below, collector grade analysis combining catalogue raisonne data with auction data for a 360 degree view of the Munch market (and other artists markets) is available to Artnome clients.

While Edvard Munch ranks in Artnome's top quartile for works produced, over 50% of Munch's paintings are located in the Munch Museum, dramatically reducing the supply available to collectors. Just 12%, or 226 of Edvard Munch paintings, are listed as being in private hands.

The average dimensions of an Edvard Munch painting are 99.02 x 103.75 cm. The median dimensions are 85 x 90 cm. The average surface area of a Munch Painting is 10,274 cm sq. and the median surface area is 7,650 cm sq. Though it varies from artist to artist, unique dimensions are often referenced by auction houses to highlight the uniqueness of a given work (one of the largest...). Where available, our Artnome client reports includes a correlation analysis between dimensions and price sold at auction.
