You know you did something right when the star of your most famous paintings gets elevated to the status of an #emoji . Forget being included in the greatest tomes of #arthistory or featuring on a stamp. Emojis are the bollocks and the emoji for fear - 😱 - is clearly based on #edvardmunch ’s poor, wretched figure who features in four versions of #thescream . They are as famous a suite of works as any in the annals of #modernart , oozing wow, why and woe. Each composition is more or less the same and asks the same questions. Does the skeleton-like figure, mouth agape in an expression of raw #agony , sound the guttural scream of primal fear? It seems to flee from two dark figures on a dynamically-foreshortened #bridge , propelling itself out of the picture plane at some pace. Or, with its hands fixed against its ears, is the #scream (as the paintings’ original title in German suggests) that of #nature itself? Suggested, as much, in the blood-orange #sky whose agitated #brushwork swoops, side to side, from the edges of each composition, like #chemtrails left behind by some angry witch from Oz. Each ensanguined swoosh bleeding in to the dark, inky pools of a brooding #sea ; Munch betraying their synergy through his disembowelling mark-making. Life here sounds the same as death, so we ask who’s spooking who? Note how the curvilinear bands of the lively sea and the more striated marks of the ominous bridge meet at the exact point where the ‘screaming’ figure stands. It’s fucked. No wonder it’s so scared, bless. It - like us - never had a chance. Man and nature doomed. All of the versions are executed on cardboard and the best version, for me, is the oil and tempera example in Oslo’s National Gallery which #munch painted in 1893. That year he also made a #pastel version, now in the #munchmuseum . In 1895 he made another pastel for which Leon Black paid $119,922,500 from #sothebys in May 2012. Bet that made his bank manager scream. The final version was made in 1910, just in #tempera , and also belongs to the Munch Museum in #oslo . Swipe 👈 and enjoy; #manicdepression never felt so good. Edvard Munch was born today in 1863. #artist
