"Christmas in the Brothel"

Edvard Munch - Oil On Canvas - 60 x 88 cm - 1905 - (Munch Museum (Oslo, Norway))

Christmas in the Brothel is an oil-on-canvas painting by Norwegian painter Edvard Munch. The Expressionist painting was completed in 1904/05 and is housed at the Munch Museum in Oslo. The painting was done at a difficult time for Munch: a commission for a portrait in Hamburg (of a Senator Holthusen, the father in law of Munch's patron Max Linde) had come to naught because of disagreements. As a result, Munch suffered anxieties, which he attempted to manage with alcohol. A visit to a brothel in Lübeck is supposedly the background to Christmas in the Brothel, a "light yet melancholy" painting in which the working girls in a brothel have just finished decorating a Christmas tree. "Ironic, sentimentally unholy", the painting is interpreted as a commentary on both Linde's upper-class household (where Munch was staying at the time) and Munch's own "pietistic home background". Like other paintings of the period, it shows Munch's association with Fauvism. Prostitution was a favored topic of Munch's, and one particular room in a German brothel would later inspire an entire series of paintings, The Green Room.
