The palpable anguish of The Scream, by Edvard Munch, vividly conveys the angst, grief and uncertainty which gripped the artist for most of his life. Strongly believing that his suffering was integral to his art, Munch (1863 1944) said the painting portrayed an experience he had in which the sky turned red and he was gripped by terror, trying to shield his ears from an infinite and piercing scream. The suffering evident in his artistic style was influenced, while Munch was young, by the deaths of his parents and sister and commitment of the other to an asylum, helping him to create an astounding 1,008 paintings, 4,443 drawings and 15,391 prints, as well as woodcuts, etchings, lithographs, lithographic stones, woodcut blocks, copperplates and photographs.
