That's one of them (of four).
It's a Hoosier thing, you wouldn't understand...
Wasn't that stolen back in the 90s?
If they got that much for just the still painting imagine what they could get for the whole movie

Gotta be one of the most famous paintings ever.

Although it was painted at the end of the 19th century, The Scream has always seemed to be exquisitely modern.
Speaks immediately to the viewer and communicates intense emotion rather than subtlety.
Absolutely wonderful image but surely it can't be worth $120 million ; that sort of money should only be tossed around in a contract for a reasonably competent sports figure.
During my mid-life single days (which ended about 14 years ago) a crazy girl friend gave me a tie with the image from the painting on it - I'm not sure if she meant it to represent her or my reaction to her, but it could have easily done either. I still have it, but it's probably worth something less than $120 million.
I'm certainly not one to "appreciate" art....interpretations, or whatever....most of it means nothing to me. But I will never forget the first time I saw "The Scream"....that is a very powerful picture. It really evokes emotion and distress in a viewer (or at least in me).
Livin' the good life as poorly as possible.
The painting which just sold for the $120 million is the most colorful of the four and it is the only version which was in private hands, the others being in museums in Oslo.
An interesting point about the painting is that the man in the painting is not screaming, he is covering his ears to shut out the scream coming from the environment around him.
Very interesting! Thanks for the information mclarke !!

The same sort of research I would have done if I had personally put in a bid on the painting.
Yeah, this is a high class joint sometimes...
