Edvard Munch - The Scream

Category: Artwork 28. October 2015

“I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite 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“
This entry of 1892 in the artist’s diary, which later became a hand-painted poem on a pastel version of the work, explains the setting of the famous picture. For the German title he chose the wording “the Scream of Nature”.
Another version of this painting is on display in the current exhibition at Albertina museum in Vienna, dedicated primarily to the graphic print work of Edvard Munch, 12 years after the last Munch exhibition in the Albertina. We asked director Klaus Albrecht Schröder to give us an insight into the probably most famous picture of the Norwegian artist. (written by Cem Angeli)
