The Scream, c.1893 by Edvard Munch

A person holding its head while screaming

This piece is part of a series of expressionist paintings by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. "The Scream" shows the influences of Touluse-Lautrec, Van Gogh and Gauguin, all three influencing Munch’s work. It is an image of fear, terryfing and unreasoned fear like that of a nightmare. Some believe it symbolizes the human species, overcome with existential angst. The rhythm of the long, wavy lines carries carry the echo of the scream into each and every corner of the picture, making the earth and sky one great sounding-board of fear. On Sunday, 22 August 2004, armed robbers stole the original iconic Edvard Munch painting, from the Munch Museum in Norway. Two masked thieves pulled the work off the wall, as well as another of his paintings, "Madonna," as stunned visitors watched. Although no one was hurt during the incident, one robber threatened staff with a gun before the pair escaped in a waiting car. As noted by a French radio producer, the security at the museum was anything but tight. The thieves were able to simply grab the paintings and pull them off the walls without any alarms sounding. The two paintings have both since been recovered with only minor damage.

This is a Serigraph
You are viewing a Serigraph print. Fine artists create serigraphs in limited runs by applying layer upon layer of pigment to the print surface by pressing it through a mesh screen containing a stencil. The complex and lengthy process commonly uses inks for pigment and stencils made of a variety of materials. Because of the nature of the process each serigraph is unique.

This is a Giclee
You are viewing a giclee print. Each piece was created by a special process called "Giclee". Giclee is a computer generated print that is produced by the spraying of an image on to fine art paper. The inks used are specially formulated so that the fine print heads can spurt jets of ink in minute droplets. When prints are produced on fine art quality paper, the print should posses archival standards of permanence comparable or better than other collectible work.

This is a Hand Colored Print
You are viewing a hand colored print. The process begins with hand-pulled black & white decorative and antique reproduction prints. Each print is then individually designed and hand colored using the same methods of color application that were used throughout the 19th century, before modern color lithography. Individual artists meticulously paint each piece using the finest European watercolor paints on heavy mat, acid free, archival paper resistant to deterioration and discoloration. By combining old world craftsmanship with fresh design innovations, our artists create works of stunning depth and vibrancy that are absolutely beautiful and unique.
