    Scream - don't , untill you hear the price.



    Munch's The Scream goes on display

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-17688100


    The only privately-owned version of Edvard Munch's classic masterpiece The Scream has gone on show in London for the first time before it is sold at auction in New York.

    The famous picture is on display at Sotheby's in the capital for a week and is expected to fetch 80 million US dollars (£50.4 million) or more at the Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale in New York on May 2.

    The pastel work, which features a haunted figure in front of a red backdrop, is one of the most recognisable images in the world.

    Sorry--you couldn't pay me that much to hang that in my home. I find it depressing--and rather terrifying.

    Well, this version was owned by a private person in Norway. (His family owns Fred. Olsen Shipping and I think they still own Timex). The State has three more versions, and hundreds or maybe thousands of other works by the same world renowned painter. But believe it or not, the State, with all the money it has on its bank account, cannot afford to build a decent museum to house and to show these works of art. Any other country would have used this to attract thousands of tourists. Norway is just too darned mean!

    It's enough to make you Scream. (Or Skrik as it it called in the original)

    according to the Daily Express and Mr A.N. Wilson

    the buyer who paid one and a half times the estimate for EDVART MUNCH THE SCREAM, is a mystery.


    so if you work for a bank and a cheque comes through your hands for $119,900.00 made payable to Sotheby's PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

    I'm a retired banker and if anyone who worked for me had let out information like that they would be out of the office and behind lock and key before you could Edvard M.

    Hi Derek
    Just to make it clear to other posters, my comment about the bank was humour.

    It is a shame you where not the bank manager of the Midland bank in Formby in December 1975, If you had of been you would have been working there on your own.

    Sorry John, but that's over my head. I retired as an Assistant General Manager (First Vice President) of Norway's largest commercial bank some years ago on health grounds. My special field was international banking. That took me i.a. to the States twice a year and to Africa at least once a year. A world of difference!

    In thoses days 1975 you could not take money out of the country. £1600 per family unit.

    I bought office equipment from the USA and one of my compediters whose wife worked at the branch read how much I had paid for some items and who I had paid through reading the cheque. Then the compeditor contacted who I had purchased the items from trying to buy the same items.


    When this was reported back to the manager he refused to comment.

    I forgot to say the bank stopped my cheque and held on to the cheque and blocked my company's funds .... this went over a period of 3 months then relesed it saying the reason was from WhiteHall.

    Interesting. Sounds like a small branch with a large "network".
