Edvard Munch’s (b. Norway 1863-1944) The Scream is an illustration of face-melting, spine-chilling agony so alien and yet familiar that it’s reverberated through the centuries. Few images pack a punch this intensely – but it’s also tragically eclipsed thousands of equally searing artworks by this brilliant albeit deeply troubled Norwegian artist.
