Madonna litho, originally uploaded by Art or Idiocy?.

60.5 x 44.2 cm

Ulrich Bischoff discusses the Madonna painting, he notes that, "at all events, when the painting was first shown in public [,] it had a frame that was decorated with painted or carved sperm or fetuses. This frame was subsequently removed and apparently lost." When Munch began to create the image in prints, we see the idea resurfaced, as in this lithograph.
