The Scream by Edvard Munch

The Scream is one of the most famous paintings in modern art history. A silently shrieking sexless figure in black against a blood-red sky has had an unmistakably strong response in pop culture. From the late twentieth century on, this painting was imitated, parodied, and outright copied so many times that it gained an iconic status (and it was stolen, and since recovered several times).

The author of this painting is Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. He created four versions of The Scream (the first one was created in 1893). There were two in paints, two in pastel, and a lithograph stone on which several prints survive.

This picture makes a strong impression. Each person experiences it in their own way. Here is how Munch himself spoke about the story behind the painting:

"I was walking along a path, the city was on one side and the fjord below. I felt tired and ill. I stopped and looked out over the fjord — the sun was setting, and the clouds turning blood red. I sensed a scream passing through nature; it seemed to me that I heard the Scream. I painted this picture, painted the clouds as actual blood. The color shrieked. This became The Scream."
