Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch’s masterpiece and one of the
One of most instantly recognizable motifs in both art history and popular culture, The Scream is Edvard’s Munch’s darkest and most challenging works.
Emphasizing the basic features of the figure to create a cartoon-like face and exchanging the somber tones of Munch’s work for his own piece of unique, bright clashing color combinations, pop-artist Andy Warhol made some radical changes to the original motif.
However, Warhol succeeded in replicating the feelings of the intense angst of the original, rendering man’s utmost despair and inner turmoil in print.
The Scream (After Munch) is expected to fetch a price between $317,600 and $476,360.
The renowned pop-artist Andy Warhol is remembered for bringing focus to the banality of the commercial culture of the U.S, creating and then pushing the artist envelope of his time. We have over the times seen the sale of Warhol’s acclaimed works like the rare Queen Elizabeth II portrait, Liz Taylor portrait for $662,000, and the Warhol’s car art, to name a few.
UPDATE: Warhol’s “Screamer Print sells for $450,000.
