"No longer shall I paint interirors with men reading and women knitting. I will paint living people who breathe and feel and suffer and love."
—Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944)
Norwegian artist Edvard Munch first exhibited his painting, Der Schrei der Natur, in an 1893 Berlin exhibition; however, several images constitute The Scream, including lithographs, paintings and pastel drawings. Ten years earlier, the volcano Krakatoa sent tons of ash into the atmosphere; Munch witnessed the eerie red sunsets it caused and "felt a great, unending scream piercing through nature." His horror led "the Father of Expressionism" to create one of the most recognizable images in modern art.
