The Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart, Germany, is celebrating the 150th birthday of Edvard Munch with a exhibition of their entire collection of his work, the first time the gallery has done so in more that 50 years.

"Edvard Munch in Stuttgart: From the First Kiss until Death" showcases 60 works from all periods of the artist's development. The highlight is the only surviving proof of Munch's iconic print "The Scream." The proof shows that Munch originally named it "Screaming." Other works, both paintings and prints, show his enduring obsession with harsh emotions such as fear and jealousy, as well as his feelings towards women, who are often portrayed as demons or vampires like in this print titled "Vampir II."

Munch had a close relationship with Stuttgart, often visiting the Staatsgalerie in order to promote his own work. The gallery has a long tradition of buying contemporary art and was thus able to build an impressive collection of Munch's work.

"Edvard Munch in Stuttgart: From the First Kiss until Death" runs until October 6.
