“One evening,Guest Posting my friends and I walked on the road, one side was the city and the other side was the fjord. And I suddenly felt very uncomfortable.” Munch described the source of inspiration when he created this masterpiece -The scream. “I stopped and overlooked the fjord. 
The sunset dyed the clouds red like the blood. At that time, I thought I heard the nature screamed ceaselessly. So I depicted this picture, painted the clouds like red blood and let the color go roaring.” The man looks like skeleton and ghost in the front of the screen is the painter Munch. Not so much he is twisting his body while shouting as he is penetrated through the screams of the nature and he could not tolerate the terrible sounds and he could not help but cover his ears. 
This sound of scream shocked the world and turned it into frantic color curves rolling around him. At the top of the scream, in the center of the crimson blood sky, there were scratchy handwritings of the painter (only lunatic can draw like this). That was the scream of Munch. He always considered the sensitive nerve was due to inheritance. For him, it was the blood curse led him to mad. Munch lost his mother and old sister since he was very young and this left a deep imprint in the depths of his soul. He had strong vision and deep despair for life and sex. He always kept skepticism towards his existence. And he still tried to express these despairs and tensions of his inner after he became a painter. In this painting, Munch depicted his fears of life and unrest emotions through the red low clouds enveloped the scene he saw one evening and the fears in the depths of the soul. 
When “The scream” was on display publicly in Berlin, most of the commentators showed obvious disgusts. The people who were accustomed to pleasing arts were shocked and fearful when suddenly faced the crazy painting with the form and the colors because it seemed to resonate in their own souls. Since then, the famous work was collected by the famous collector Olaf and he donated it to the Oswald Ling National Gallery few years later. This painting was so to speak the pinnacle of Munch. It surpassed the personal tensions in the painter’s soul and told the anxieties and fears in the depths of the human souls which were never waked up.
