A Spooky Floral Arrangement Inspired by Edvard Munch

IN LIGHT OF approaching All Hallows Eve, I decided to use this month’s arrangement to channel the fear and spooky angst conveyed by the paintings of Edvard Munch (1863-1944).

The Norwegian expressionist, an exhibit of whose work opens at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Nov. 15, doggedly captured anxiety, most notably in “The Scream” (1893). The woman in this 1899 painting, “Melancholy, Laura,” who seems almost frozen in terror, has turned her back to the world.
