Version of The Scream to go on display in New York
NEW YORK (AFP) - A version of the The Scream by Edvard Munch will go on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York next month for six months, the museum said on Tuesday.
There are actually four versions of the Norwegian Expressionist's work, which shows a human figure with a horrified facial expression and hands held to his head, all against a landscape with a turbulent orange sky.
It has become a universal symbol of fear and anguish.
The one bound for New York, done in pastel in 1895, is the only one held in private hands. The other three are in Norwegian museums.
