About the Work

One woman between two men: the Polish writer Stanislaw Przybyszewski on the left is green with frenzy, whereas the figure on the right – who carries Munch’s features – seems withdrawn. At the time the picture was painted, the jealous scenes over the woman of letters Dagny Juel, who eventually married Przybyszewski, already belonged to the distant past. The appearance of a femme fatale in Munch’s later works is linked to his tension-filled relationship with his lover, Tulla Larson; their quarrels still tormented the artist many years after their separation.
