The Scream of self-liberation: Paintings by one of Expressionism's pioneers
 
For Edvard Munch (1863-1944), painting was an act of self-liberation. His treatments of fear, desperation, and death still exert a powerful visual and psychological effect on modern viewers. Of all Munch’s paintings, The Scream (1893), representing a figure tortured by horror, is the most well-known-and certainly one of the most expressive.

The artist reflected his innermost feelings in his work: In reality, my art is a free confession, an attempt to clarify to myself my own relation to life... Although Edvard Munch cannot be clearly identified with any single movement, he is deemed a pioneer of Expressionism.
