In almost every biography of painter Edvard Munch, it is his father's side of the family that gets the most prominence. And indeed, the Munch side of the family boasts a colourful gallery of priests, deans, painters and writers, distinguished and obscure.

In the Mothers of Munch, it becomes apparent that it was from his mother's side of the family that Munch acquired his great talent. Munch himself even attributed his drawing and painting skills to his mother. Edvard Munch became a great artist and in significant ways it is his mother, Laura Cathrine, and after her death, his aunt Karen who had the deepest impact on his life, work and career. 2013, 52 minutes http://www.munchsmø
