Scream (Skrik, 1893) is a seminal series of expressionist paintings by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. It is said by some to symbolize the human species overwhelmed by an attack of existential angst... Several versions of this painting are on display at the Munch Museum and National Gallery, both in Oslo, Norway.
