Skrik - Shriek - I was stolen




Ok, here I am. Millions upon millions have asked my this question:Where did you do that famous, seductive, sensual, sexual, ancious , mad crazy SHRIEK (skrik).From here:Learn even more

Believe it or not. It was just here Edvard Munch got the "sight", which several years after, when living abroad from Norway, for decades, gave him the inspiratation to paint his most world famous painting: Skrik.

He was not then sole famous intellectual at that time, who went abroud to sit down and "skrik". One that you may have heard about is Henrik Ibsen. Who's plays still are on every theater-groups playlist.

Actually, that is one painting that I really don't like. It's awful. It's a horrible skrik on it that disturbs me. But then again, maybe that's what it's supposed to do...

Two incredibly talented "artists"...and both from Norway! It is interesting that Munch lived such a much quieter life once he returned to Norway....
