The Scream by Edvard Munch is a pastel painting that was done in 1893. I found this work to be really interesting especially because of the colors. I love the colors and the background looks really pretty to me. I also found that the figure of the man screaming caught my attention. It makes me wonder what Munch's idea was behind the strange figure. Why is the man screaming? It makes you think. This painting just really caught my attention and I can easily see why it is so well-known.
