The Norwegian artist and cartoonist Arvid Andreassen has, in this elegant humour and coffeetable-book, a bestseller at The Munch Museum in Oslo, gathered 86 of his 300 parodies of the Norwegian painter Edvard Munch's ?Scream?. Enjoy this hilarious book in the Edvard Munch 150 years jubilee!
The world's most famous angst-ridden person is placed in numerous funny situations, and Arvid also shows how 17 well known artists (Picasso, Miro, Klee, Michelangelo, van Gogh, Moore, Dali, Cezanne, Duchamp, Gragg, Magritte, Van Eyck, Chagall, Hokusai, etc) could have incorporated "Scream" in their art work.
The experienced art journalist Arvid Bryne , who was Arvid's editor during more than two years when Arvid produced about 100 versions of ?The Scream? to be printed every Saturday in the Norwegian daily Dagbladet, has written microbiographies about these artists, and also a brief presentation of the life and art of Arvid Andreassen.
