LITERATURE: Alf Bøe: "Forord" (Foreword), utstillingskatalog Edvard Munch og hans modeller, 1912-1943, Munch-museet 1988 (exhibition catalogue Edvard Munch and his models, 1912-1943, The Munch Museum 1988).

Working with models was very important for Edvard Munch on multiple levels: As training of the hand, and development of artistic skill, as meetings with and exploration of the personalities they themselves represented, and as exploration, by their help, of the human condition which forms the core of his art. Bøe, p. 7.
