“The Scream” in a Window

This copy of Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch’s iconic The Scream (1895) is in a Kansas City window, surrounded by roses and honeysuckle in bloom. The Scream is among the most celebrated and recognized images in art history. Munch created four versions of The Scream between 1893 and 1910. In the late twentieth century, The Scream was imitated, parodied, and outright copies have been made following its copyright expiration, which led to it acquiring an iconic status in popular culture.
