You know something that’ll make you despair? Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”–or, really, one version of the four originals–was once abducted by art thieves who obviously didn’t know they could just buy a poster of the famous painting at plenty of shops in America. That was on August 22nd 2004. The painting wasn’t recovered until August 31st, 2006. Norwegian police never provided any real details on the theft, though. They must have thought it would just make the public get depressed down by the docks. Things have gotten better for Munch’s masterpiece, though. Another of  the “Scream” originals recently sold for $120 million on the auction block. That must be another person who doesn’t know about the “Scream” posters. Anyway, we salute the classic “Scream” as iconic imagery–but if our Munch painting was ever stolen, we think we’d just replace ours with any of these fine parodies…
