Edvard Munch, Norwegian artist (1863-1944)
”The Scream” is one of Edvard Munch’s most famous pieces, and a central cultural heritage of Norway.
Reflector: A copy of Munch’s original work: “The Scream”.
Card: The Munch Heist. The Munch Heist: The Heist happened just after 11:00 AM on August the 22nd, 2004. Two perpetrators, armed with a loaded Smith&Wesson 357 Magnum stormed the museum, while one man waited in a car outside. The two burglars inside threatened gurds and visitors to lay down on the floor. They tore down “The Scream” and “Madonna” from the wall, and got away unharmed. The tale of the escape and following investigation, and of how the paintings came back to its rightful owners is too long to be told here.
We simply conclude: Everyone likes Munch.
