Edvard Munch "The Scream" 1893
I chose Edvard Munch and the Scream because I have been interested in this painting ever since I first saw it. I always wondered how he got the colors to move like that.
Munch was trying to express what he was feeling on the inside. He was one of the first to ever use his own feelings to paint and it was one of the keys of the Post Impressionist stage.
Edvard Munch used many weird things to paint on. In this one he used tempera paint and a cardboard box folded up to use as a canvas. He also used a palette knife to paint the background with and a paint brush for the details in the foreground.
The subject matter of this painting is the expressive paint and colors. He also had the screaming guy as the subject in the foreground to draw out the colors and elaborate strokes in the background.
