The Scream (seen above) was done in four versions all portraying the agonized expression. Munsch described his inspiration for the painting this way,
One evening I was walking along a path, the city was on one side and the fjord below. I felt tired and ill. I stopped and looked out over the fjord—the sun was setting, and the clouds turning blood red. I sensed a 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 .Like I said, it's not my favorite piece of art, not even one I love but it does evoke emotion and it is leading down a winding road- not unlike the one in the picture. Do you have art or music that inspires you?
