The painting "Sin, Woman With Red Hair And Green Eyes" by Edvard Munch is a masterpiece of expressionism. The composition of the painting is very interesting, since the woman is sitting on a chair with a very relaxed posture, but her gaze is intense and penetrating. The red color of the woman's hair and the green of her eyes are very striking and contrast with the dark background of the painting.

The story behind this painting is very interesting. Munch is said to have been inspired by a woman he met in a brothel in Berlin. The woman had red hair and green eyes, and Munch was entranced by her beauty and intense gaze. The painting was created in 1901 and was one of Munch's first works in which he used color so intensively.

One of the lesser known aspects of this painting is that Munch painted it in two different versions. The first version was created in 1895 and is in the Norwegian National Gallery in Oslo. The second version, which is the best known, was created in 1901 and is in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

Munch's artistic style is characterized by his use of color and form to express intense emotions. In "Sin, Woman With Red Hair And Green Eyes", Munch uses the color red to symbolize passion and desire, while green symbolizes envy and lust. The woman in the painting represents sin and temptation, and her intense gaze is an invitation to fall into temptation.

In short, "Sin, Woman With Red Hair And Green Eyes" is a fascinating painting that represents Edvard Munch's artistic and emotional style. The composition, color and story behind the painting are aspects that make it unique and memorable.
