Also in the hotel, no Edvard Munch but it looks like Munch’s famous Madonna. An ignorant ran away with it some years ago and got caught before getting of the parking

The real Madonna, stolen from National Museum Oslo in 2004 and recovered 2 years later, property of Edvard Blitz, is estimated €20m. 3 guys, trying to sell the painting, got 4 to 8 prison

Skrik, Munch’s most famous painting. A self portrait. Pic from Wikipedia

Munch, born 12/12/1864, raised up poor and traumatic. Went to Paris where he met Van Gogh and Gaugin. Back in Oslo, after finishing an affair with a married woman and a walk through the park, he painted this ‘Skrik’ There are 4. A selfportrait. Though most think the figure on the painting shouts, it is claimed that it is the background shouting. Instead of calling the painting ‘the long shout’ or ‘de schreeuw’ it should be called ‘Skrik’ or ‘Fear’
