The Scream

The Scream by Edvard Munch is one of the most recognizable paintings in the world. Munch created four versions of them. The image has its source in Munch’s experience. As the artist walked across a bridge with friends at sunset, he was seized with despair and “felt a great infinite scream pass through nature.” The Scream is the artist’s best known work and most widely reproduced image. It has become a symbol of modern anxiety and alienation. These are the kinds of work that a lot people can relate to. I personally love it. There’s not a lot works that bring so much emotions to viewer.   

Here is one of the other versions of The Scream:
