The Scream by Edvard Munch

The Scream, by Edvard Munch

My favorite painting. Art has never really evoked emotion in me, until I saw this painting. It affects me in a way I cannot explain.

I recently read a very interesting book about the history of this painting and how it was stolen and recovered twice, if this is the kind of thing you enjoy, it’s definitely worth a read! Stealing the Scream by Edward Dolnick.

Unfortunately, the painting was recently sold to a private colector at auction for approximately 119 million and can no longer be enjoyed by the general public.
