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’
