A Visual Analysis of Edvard Munch’s Landscape Paintings Based on Feldman’s Art Criticism Theory


Edvard Munch was a key figure in modern Expressionism, and his emotionally charged works had a profound impact on art. This study is based on Feldman’s theory of art criticism and analyzes Munch’s landscape paintings from 1893 to 1933 from the four stages of description, analysis, interpretation and judgment, focusing on the use of color, emotional expression and artistic expression through qualitative research methods. style, and finally construct an analytical framework about the characteristics of Munch’s landscape paintings. The study found two stages of development of Munch’s landscape paintings: the early stage (1890-1908) highlighted expressionist features and inner sad emotions, with sharp color contrasts; the later stage (after 1909) featured more vivid and diverse colors and peaceful emotions. Reflecting his love for nature, the brushwork has a stronger sense of texture. This analysis provides insight into Munch’s unique expressionist style, which emphasized emotional depth and visual impact, providing a new perspective on art education and modern creation.
