Scream The Scream (Norwegian: Skrik) is the popular name given to multiple versions of a composition by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch between 1893 and 1910. The German title Munch gave these works is Der Schrei der Natur (The Scream of Nature). The works show a figure with an agonized expression against a landscape with a tumultuous orange sky.
Arthur Lubow has described The Scream as an icon of modern art, a Mona Lisa for our time. Edvard Munch created four versions in paint and pastels.The National Gallery in Oslo, Norway, holds one of two painted versions (1893, shown at right). The Munch Museum holds the other painted version (1910, see gallery, below) and also a pastel version from 1893.
These three versions have seldom traveled, though the 1893 pastel was exhibited at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in 2015. The item "SCREAM Munch Treasures of World 1 Oz Silver Coin 1$ Niue 2019" is in sale since Wednesday, March 20, 2019.
