    :o :shock: I have no words, that is terrible news. I hope they find it and that it's not damaged. munch is one of my very favourite artists... as a student of art history, it would be a tragedy if it was lost forever. thanks for posting, brian. :shock:

    Well, apparently they found the broken frames of the paintings shortly after...and witnesses said the thieves dropped the paintings several times on the ground while trying to hurry out with them... :o

    Wasn't it stolen once before? I seem to remember something about that from a book when I was little...

    another version of it has been stolen a few years ago - munch painted serveral versions of this theme.
    I am curious wheter this will be a case of art-napping, since the painting is soo known that it is virtually not possible to sell it. though the thieves make quite an unprofessional impression...

    Thats so terrible. Especially the dropping and broken frames. Come on art thieves! You won't get as much money if its damaged!

    I hope they catch these goons.

    that's so awful-it's one of my favourite paintings. I did my whole GCSE study on it when I was 16. I loved it as soon as I saw it. I hope they find it.

    I'm quite sure that many collectors would buy it on the black market.
