Neither a blockbuster nor exactly a mood--booster, the small and sober--minded exhibition “Edvard Munch: A 150th Anniversary Tribute” is nevertheless worth a look before it closes at the end of the month. In celebration of the 1863 birth of the psychologically deep Norwegian painter and printmaker, the National Gallery of Art has brought together more than 20 Munch works on paper from its collection, including an 1895 lithograph of the artist’s famous “The Scream” and a suite of six versions of the haunting print “Two Women on the Shore.”

Stop by for a gallery talk at 1 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and July 26.
