Behind Munch – and through him – we see a painting, rendered in watercolor and graphite. This is one of about three dozen renderings that Munch made in the summer of 1930 when a blood vessel burst in his right eye. Munch was temporarily blinded and was ordered to rest. The watercolor is divided by a line, and above it, the figure of a man lies in bed with his left hand held against his closed eye. His right eye, rendered as a dot, is open. Munch was both fearful of and fascinated by his ailment and set about painting what he saw from inside his head.
