I was walking along the road with two friends
the sun was setting
suddenly the sky turned blood red 
I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence
there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city 
my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety
and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.
~ Edvard Munch 
Poem hand-painted onto the frame of the 1895 pastel verson of this painting.


  1. That's too cool, I'm surprised that I didn't know this...

  2. I just learned about it. There is a series of four paintings of the same scene. Always knew the painting, but not the story behind it.
