The Scream

by

It was on this day in 1994 that Edvard Munch’s masterpiece The Scream was recovered after having being stolen three months earlier from the National Gallery in Oslo. Last week a pastel version of the work became the most expensive artwork to be sold at auction, fetching an astonishing £74m.

You can learn more about the artist and his work here at the Munch Museum in Oslo.

    Are you sure it wasn’t 74p?

    Well done to those who spotted the deliberate mistake! It was, or course, £74,000,000.
