This iconic image in Expressionist art is set against an unnaturally orange and swirling landscape. Seen as symbolizing the anxiety of the human experience, this painting from 1893 is the second most recognizable artwork in the world, after the Mona Lisa. Edvard Munch penned a verse on the frame of the work, that describes the moment:
"I was walking along the road with two friends
The Sun was setting – the Sky turned blood-red.
And I felt a wave of Sadness – I paused
tired to Death – Above the blue-black
Fjord and City Blood and Flaming tongues hovered
My friends walked on – I stayed
behind – quaking with Angst – I
felt the great Scream in Nature"
