The Scream is a famous painting by the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. Made in 1893, oil, tempera and pastels on cardboard, the work was painted in four versions, one of which was placed in the Oslo nation gallery. Munch represents a very mature symbolism and a distressing message. It is undoubtedly one of the painter's most famous works and one of the most disturbing in the whole century. We find the deep meaning of the painting described by the artist himself in some pages of his diary: "I walked along the road with two friends - when the sun went down - the sky suddenly turned into red blood - I stopped, leaned tired dead to a fence - on the blue black fjord and on the city there were blood and tongues of fire - my friends kept on walking and I was still trembling with fear - and I felt that a great endless scream pervaded nature ". The strongly autobiographical scene is rich in symbolic references. The man in the foreground expresses, in the solitude of his individuality, the drama of all humanity. The bridge recalls the thousand obstacles that each of us must overcome in our existence, while the same friends who continue to walk quietly represent the falsehood of human relationships with raw disillusionment. In Munch the form loses any naturalistic trace, becoming prey to the artist's deepest anxieties. It is the scream of someone who has lost himself and feels lonely, useless and desperate even among others.
