Norwegian painter and printmaker Edward Munch is known for his dark and dreary Expressionist depictions—and Self Portrait With Skeleton Arm (1895) is no exception. This peculiar piece was initially rendered in lithographic chalk and ink, and has been reprinted several times since its conception. In later reproductions, Munch even opted to blackout both the skeletal arm and his signature.
Today, authentic prints of this piece can be found in numerous collections, including the British Museum.
