      August Strindberg (1849-1912) was a Swedish poet, writer and a close friend of Munch during his early years in Berlin and in Paris in 1896. Munch painted a portrait of him in 1892 (Museum of Modern Art, Stockholm) and produced prints of him throughout 1896, stating in a diary entry dated July 1, 1896, "Paris is really lovely...it is perfect to work here—I stick to lithographs and etching...I have finished a lithograph of Strindberg." Schiefler 77; Woll 66.
