Know Your Screams

May 3rd, 2012 (08:05 pm)

One of the Edvard Munch Screams sold at a Sotheby's auction in New York yesterday for nearly $120 million! (BBC).

Quite frankly, reading through articles on the web, I was having trouble keeping track of the 4 versions Munch did (5, if you count the 1895 lithographs, of which there are approximately 45 copies).

So I made this animated GIF to sum up the history:

Here's my rendition of the reaction of the crowd when the auction ended.

But you know, a little scream makes every painting better!

Abbey Scream!

Note that the fellow in the middle is the one worth $120 million!

Ha, is it this Scream Pillow?

A friend of mine used to have one of these inflatable scream dolls, but they're no longer made, looks like.

Also, I like the Plush Scream!
