The Scream Canvas Print

Rs.1,799.00

Availability: In stock

Artist: Edvard Munch

Year: 1893

Original Medium: Oil, tempera, and pastel on cardboard

Essentially this famous picture is autobiographical, an expressionistic construction based on Munch's actual experience of a scream piercing through nature while on a walk, after his two companions, seen in the background, had left him. Fitting the fact that the sound must have been heard at a time when his mind was in an abnormal state, Munch renders it in a style which if pushed to extremes can destroy human integrity.

The flowing curves of art nouveau represent a subjective linear fusion imposed upon nature, whereby the multiplicity of particulars is unified into a totality of organic suggestion with feminine overtones. But man is part of nature, and absorption into such a totality liquidates the individual. Beginning at this time Munch included art nouveau elements in many pictures but usually only in a limited or modified way. Here, however, in depicting his own morbid experience, he has let go, and allowed the foreground figure to become distorted by the subjectivized flow of nature; the scream could be interpreted as expressing the agony of the obliteration of human personality by this unifying force. Significantly, although it was Munch himself who underwent the experience depicted, the protagonist bears no resemblance to him or anyone else. The creature in the foreground has been depersonalized and crushed into sexlessness or, if anything, stamped with a trace of the femininity of the world that has come close to assimilating it.

The Scream has been the target of several high-profile art thefts. In 1994, the version in the National Gallery was stolen. It was recovered several months later. In 2004, both The Scream and Madonna were stolen from the Munch Museum, and recovered two years later. Well, now, you can lay your hands on a re-print from Engrave without having to risk a heist.

About the Maker

We love printing photos on canvas. But even before we print, our design team works with each of our customers personally till the picture's perfect. Once you are satisfied with the digital proof, the photos are then printed on archival grade canvas using the giclee printing method that's used by artists and galleries. Each print is given a protective finish to ensure that the colours don't fade over decades. The canvas prints are then hand-stretched, framed and inspected to ensure the highest standards and attention to detail.
