and Passion entwined
Two sustaining facets of love that are most depicted by artists
in Munch's era were passion and purity. Those were the two types
of love seen, that of God (purity, Virgin Mary etc.) and passion
(of the flesh, of the woman etc.). Munch depicts a woman as love...
his love is enveloped with passion (red) and purity (white). Without
which, most find themselves helpless in love.
