Eduard Munch's masterpiece: The scream
Eduard Munch, who was born in Oslo in 1.863, talked about his feelings through this painting:
“ I was scared here. And I felt a huge scream going through nature”.
This famous painting expresses the anguish that his author, an european man, felt in the early XX century.
We call this style expressionism ; shapes and colours are used to express the painter's ideas and feelings.
