Edvard Munch. Dagny Juel Przybyszewska.

Dagny Juel Przybyszewska (1867-1901) was a Norwegian writer, best known for her affairs with prominent intellectuals of the Expressionist movement. She was involved with Edvard Munch, August Strindberg and finally married Stanislaw Przybyszewski in 1893. She died in 1901, aged 33, at the hands of Wladislaw Emeryk, her lover at the time. There is evidence that her husband may have arranged the murder.
