Munch’s «Melancholy», like many of his other works, exists in several modified versions.
In a pensive male figure against the background — or rather «in the background» — of a gloomy Norwegian fjord and the western sky, the artist depicted his close friend. In the engraving, writer and art critic Jappe Nielsen experiences difficult feelings through his affair with married artist Oda Krog.
One of the earliest versions of Melancholy was originally called «Jealousy».
