Anxiety, created by Edvard Munch, is an oil painting on canvas. It was created in 1894 and is the style of expressionism. It’s currently on display in the Much Museum, which is in Oslo, Norway.
There are a wide array of colors used in this painting. Munch created a skyline with oranges and yellows, which lead into dark purples and backs on the ground. In the front of the painting are several people standing in a line on the Oslo bridge. A woman is in front, but the people behind her appear male. Many of the faces in the back are blurred out and everyone is wearing black with a hat.
Many art critics feel that Anxiety is closely related to Munch’s more famous piece, The Scream. The faces show despair and the dark colors show a depressed state. Many critics also believe it’s meant to show heartbreak and sorrow, which are common emotions all people feel.
