The Scream

The Scream is by Edvard Munch created in 1893. It is oil, tempera and pastel on canvas. The reason that I liked this painting was because I thought it showed a true sense of human emotion. The figure in the painting seems to be screaming with agony. When people are truely that upset, it may seem that nothing else around them matters. I feel that he uses the blood red sky and the undistinguished lines to show that everything around this figure was becoming blurry. It seems almost as if the figure itself is blending into nature, that they are becoming one. To me this painting is the perfect example of how human emotions can control ones life and make things seem almost unreal at times.
