We all have misinterpreted “the scream” 😱



The scream, painted by Edvard Munch, is one of the most famous art works in the world and even inspired a horror movie franchise. It depicts what appears to be a screaming figure, however this is apparently wrong.

Curators at the British Museum found a lithography of it with a tiny commentary from the author stating that the figure heard an exceptionally loud scream from nature and it is actually covering its ears fearfully.

This finally puts and end to the debate over whether The Scream shows a man screaming or hearing a scream that has raged on for decades
