Edvard Munch The Scream, c.1893

The Scream, c.1893 by Edvard Munch art print
Description:
"The Scream," part of a series of expressionist paintings by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch, shows the influences of Touluse-Lautrec, Van Gogh and Gauguin. It is an image of fear, terryfing and unreasoned, like that of a nightmare. Some believe it symbolizes the human species overcome with existential angst. The rhythm of the long, wavy lines carry the echo of the scream into each and every corner of the picture, making the earth and sky one great sounding board of fear. On 22 August 2004, two masked and armed robbers stole the original iconic painting, and another painting, "Madonna," from the Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway, as stunned visitors watched. No one was hurt during the incident. At the time, the security at the museum was so lax that the thieves were able to simply grab the paintings off the wall without any alarms sounding. On 31 August 2006, the paintings were recovered and were said to be in a better-than-expected condition. "The Scream" had moisture damage on the lower left corner, while "Madonna" suffered several tears on the right side as well as two holes in Madonna's arm. The conserved works went back on display on 23 May 2008, when the exhibition "Scream and Madonna — Revisited" displayed the paintings together. Some damage to "The Scream" may prove impossible to repair, but the overall integrity of the work has not been compromised.
This is a Serigraph
You are viewing a Serigraph print. Fine artists create serigraphs in limited runs by applying layer upon layer of pigment to the print surface by pressing it through a mesh screen containing a stencil. The complex and lengthy process commonly uses inks for pigment and stencils made of a variety of materials. Because of the nature of the process each serigraph is unique.
This is a Giclee
You are viewing a giclee print. Each piece was created by a special process called "Giclee". Giclee is a computer generated print that is produced by the spraying of an image on to fine art paper. The inks used are specially formulated so that the fine print heads can spurt jets of ink in minute droplets. When prints are produced on fine art quality paper, the print should posses archival standards of permanence comparable or better than other collectible work.
This is a Hand Colored Print
You are viewing a hand colored print. The process begins with hand-pulled black & white decorative and antique reproduction prints. Each print is then individually designed and hand colored using the same methods of color application that were used throughout the 19th century, before modern color lithography. Individual artists meticulously paint each piece using the finest European watercolor paints on heavy mat, acid free, archival paper resistant to deterioration and discoloration. By combining old world craftsmanship with fresh design innovations, our artists create works of stunning depth and vibrancy that are absolutely beautiful and unique.
This is a Museum Quality Fine Art Print
You are viewing a museum quality fine-art print. The prints we carry are produced using either the lithographic or serigraphic printing process and are printed on high quality archival acid free paper. Most prints are on a thick (120 pound or higher) stock of paper. Each print is of the highest museum art print reproduction quality and are supplied by the world's leading art publishers. These prints rival any detailed reproduction from their originals and are geared towards the discerning eye of the particular art collector.
This is a Limited Edition
Limited editions are a series of identical prints, which are limited to a one-time printing of a certain number of pieces. The artist determines the size of the edition, and usually signs and numbers each individual piece. Limited edition prints framed by the Fulcrum Gallery are handled separately and given the utmost individual care and attention, using archival framing materials and practices. Because limited editions are in limited supply, and are of exceptionally high quality, the price is generally at a premium to regular open edition prints.
