Woman with Red Hair and Green Eyes. The Sin
Lithograph printed in yellow, red and blue on thin Japan paper
Sheet: 943x557 mm Image: 695x399 mm
Signed in pencil lower right: E Munch
Annotated with dedication by the artist in pencil lower right: "Til fru Julie Holmboe venligst fra Forf.» (To Mrs Julie Holmboe (the name has been tried errased) Yours from the Author).
Probably did Edvard Munch together with the print send Mrs Julie Holmboe something he had written, it might have been something about “The Frieze of Life”, and so it was natural for him to refer to himself as “the author”.
