Puberty by the Norwegian painter Edvard Munch is certainly the most uncomfortable viewing experience I've ever had in the realm of fine art. There's also a kind of psychological complexity to it, and, in spite of myself, it's a painting I find myself coming back to every couple of years.

I was curious about the identity of the model. All the articles I could find through Google just said that there was a great deal of interesting speculation about her, but nothing was ever established beyond doubt. But because of the detail around her collarbones, it is likely Munch used a live model.

I think I can remember reading, a few years ago, one theory that the model was Munch's landlord's daughter, and another theory that she was Munch's younger sister. (I couldn't find anything to back up either of these theories when I searched just now.) Does anyone have anything more solid in this regard?
