Morning by Edvard Munch

This scene was painted by Munch in 1884. It is called Morgen (Morning) or Pike på Sengekanten (Girl sitting on a bed) . It  can be seen IRL at the Art Museums of Bergen, but I got to see it at the big Edvard Munch Exhibit last year at the National Gallery of Oslo.

Edvard Munch painted this when he was only 21 years old, and I think it's maybe his most beautiful work. The scene is so simple, so ordinary, and then again it is all about serenity, hope, future, happiness. I simply love this painting, and while at the gallery, I kept walking back through the crowds, to see it again and again.
