The Scream (v2)1893 by Edvard Munch

Edvard Munch’s "The Scream" is probably the most famous work of the Norwegian artist and is considered one of the icons of recent art history.

Munch varied the motif four times between 1893 and 1910.

The Scream (Norwegian: Skrik) is the popular name given to each of four versions of a composition, created as both paintings and pastels, by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch between 1893 and 1910.

Edvard Munch created the four versions in various media. The National Gallery in Oslo, Norway, holds one of two painted versions (1893, shown here)....
