'The Scream' to Go on View at MoMA
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
The Museum of Modern Art is presenting a special six-month exhibition of Edvard Munch's "The Scream," which sold for nearly $120 million at auction in May.
The exhibition opens Wednesday and will run through April 29. It will include a small group of works of the same period.
The painting is the most expensive artwork ever sold at auction. It was purchased by an anonymous private collector at Sotheby's in May.
Munch created four versions of "The Scream" between 1893 and 1910. This is the only one in private hands. The others are in Norwegian museums.
