The Scream certainly is one of the most famous artworks of all time. The masterpiece was painted by the artist Edvard Munch in 1893. The Scream is a 91 cm × 73.5 cm (36 in × 28.9 in) oil, tempera, crayon, and pastel on cardboard and has two oil painting versions and two on pastels. Munch also made a lithograph stone used for a considerable amount of prints. The Scream is now part of the National Gallery and Munch Museum in Oslo. Considered a Symbolist painter with Impressionist influences, Munch painted this masterpiece, and other works in a similar vein, regarded as precursors of Expressionism. The Scream is probably the artwork most associated with the movement.
Through access to the journals of Edvard Munch, it is known the exact moment that the painter was inspired and first elaborated The Scream. In 1892, walking close to a steep rock formation, the sun was setting. Munch felt suddenly ill and watched the sky turn to a blood-red color. The painter sensed a scream passing through the evening, and the sensation was strong enough to make him visualize the picture. The setting is based on the actual place Munch was walking on that day in Oslo.
Apart from that, some people link the inspiration for the radical and grieving appearance of the work to the entering of Munch’s sister, Laura Catherine, into a mental hospital. Physical illness was also a constant in his family, with his mother and then his senior sister dying from tuberculosis, turning death into a motif of the painter’s oeuvre.
The Scream features a desperately looking figure screaming in horror. Their face is very similar to a skull. The eyes are big and round, and the mouth wide open. The character’s whole body is very distorted in a curvilinear fashion, embodying a sensation of movement and anxiety. Some bright lines of blue pastel are used to emphasize some geometrical shapes. The bridge on its farther part shows two other figures walking, and it’s not clear if they’re coming or going. The deep rock formations were painted blue, and the mountains yellow, green, and gray. The sky has sinuous, strong red, yellow, and green lines, bringing with strong dramatic effect a sensation of dissociation.
