(Reuters) - A major private collection of the graphic works of Edvard Munch, renowned for his haunting painting "The Scream", goes on show for the first time on Friday at Zurich's Kunsthaus museum, exploring his musings on the human condition.



"Edvard Munch. 150 Master Prints" displays works on loan from an anonymous private collector ranging from his first drypoint in 1894 to the Norwegian artist's final lithograph just before his death in 1944.

Divided into sections depicting motifs such as "Angst", "Melancholy", "Vampire" and "The Kiss", the lithographs, etchings and woodcuts shed light on how Munch refined the printing process and elaborated and reworked his subjects.
