The Norwegian symbolist artist Edvard Munch's iconic series of four versions of his work titled "Der Schrei die Natur" (the scream of nature) popularly known as "The Scream". Three of the original four versions made as both tempera and pastels are currently found at the National Gallery in Norway, however, one of the four versions in pastel was auctioned in 2012 at Sotheby's Impressionist and Modern Art auction to a private collector for nearly $120,000,000, making it the second highest price achieved at that time by a painting at auction. In a diary entry by Edvard Munch dating to January 22, 1892 the artist states: "I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there were blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature." Edvard Munch's "Scream" is often described as a representation of the existentialist feelings and moods characterizing the nineteen-century Fin-de-siècle period. Like Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Edvard Munch's The Scream is one of the most iconic artworks in the history of art with its androgynous figure, skull-shaped head, elongated hands, wide eyes, flaring nostrils, and open mouth, which has now been ingrained forever in our collective cultural consciousness.

Munch
Edvard Munch was a Norwegian painter and printmaker whose intensely evocative treatment of psychological themes built upon some of the main tenets of late 19th-century Symbolism and greatly influenced German Expressionism in the early 20th century. His childhood was sadly overshadowed by illness, bereavement and the dread of inheriting a mental condition that ran in his family. The oppressive religious milieu, his poor health, and the vivid ghost stories helped inspire his macabre visions and nightmares; the boy felt that death was constantly advancing on him. While studying at the Royal School of Art and Design in Kristiania (now Oslo), Munch began to live a bohemian life, under the influence of the nihilist Hans Jæger. The latter urged him to paint his own emotional and psychological state ('soul painting'), where his distinctive style emerged. His painting The Scream (1893), can be seen as a symbol of modern spiritual anguish and has become an iconic image of the art world. The painting's agonized face is widely identified with the angst of the modern person. According to Munch, he was out walking at sunset, when he 'heard the enormous, infinite scream of nature. As his fame and wealth grew, his emotional state remained insecure. A mental breakdown forced him to give up heavy drinking, and he was cheered by his increasing acceptance by the people of Kristiania and exposure in the city's museums. His later years were spent in solitude, working in peace and privacy.
