LITERATURE: Hans-Martin Frydenberg Flaatten: Måneskinn i Åsgårdstrand Edvard Munch (Moonshine in Åsgårdstrand Edvard Munch), Oslo 2013.

In the soft, warm midsummer night the woman stands in front of a house. She seems motionless with a melancholic expression on her face. It’s quite dark, the contours are blurry, one gets the idea that something is going on, on an emotional level, but the feelings are hidden, held back, it all becomes mystical.
