Munch's 'The Scream' could make £50m today

Wow, imagine painting a picture that makes you £50million! OK it is over 60 years after the artist's death.

Today, The Scream, by Edvard Munch will go on sale in New York and if you have a few spare pounds it could be yours.

It is one of the Munch's earlier works painted in 1893 when he was 30.  He died in 1944 aged 80 and bequeathed 1,100 paintings, 4,500 drawings, and 18,000 prints to the city of Oslo who built the Munch Museum.

We have some screams on MeMyArt, just type scream into the search engine.

There is some slightly more affordable art if you want to hang something on your wall, certainly more affordable that Munch's Scream!
