Maev Kennedy previews Jasper Johns and Edvard Munch: Love, Loss and the Cycle of Life, on view at the Munch Museum, Oslo through September 25, 2016. The show examines the relationship between two paintings – one by Johns and one by Munch. The pictures bears similar titles that include the words "Between the Clock and the Bed."

Kennedy writes that exhibition curator "[John B] Ravenal thinks both artists’ paintings are about sexuality and mortality, subjects much on the minds of both men – explicit in the Munch work, with the painting of the nude girl hanging by the bed, and the coffin-like clock measuring the remaining time, but also lurking in the shadows of the Johns."
