The Story

why we love it

This is Edvard Munch’s most iconic work of art, who made different versions of it over the years, but in reality, “The Scream” does not scream, as it has been thought for many years.

It seems that the protagonist of the painting is reacting to a scream, the figure is listening to the scream and covers his ears instead.
Munch made clear what was happening in a German inscription and in a black and white lithograph, where Munch noted with the words: “I felt the great cry in all of nature.”
Today we can see our planet screaming if we don’t act here and now.

This is just our small contribution, your curiosity can do the rest.
Enjoy learning!
