The beauty of art part 2: the answers

In my last blogspot, I shared this painting:

and I asked you a number of questions. It seems they were easier than part 1, maybe because I chose the most known of the four versions of the painting. Here are the other three:

Here are the answers to the questions I posted:

What is the name of the painting?
Skriet / the scream

Who painted it?
Edvard Munch

What is this type of art called?
Expressionism. It has been said that Expressionist artists want to express the meaning of emotional experience rather than physical reality. Something we clearly see in the Scream.

Where can the original painting be seen?
Nasjonalgalleriet / the national gallery in Oslo

How does this painting make you feel?
No right answers to this one of course, but these are the feelings you have described:
Anger, anguish, despair, awful and cannot watch

I deliberately chose this painting as part 2 in this series, since the painting shared in part 1 gives most people completely different feelings.

Art has an ability to inspire many different types of emotions. Therein lies its amazing strength.
