Edvard Munch (December 12, 1863 - January 23, 1944) was a Norwegian expressionist painter and printmaker. The Scream (1893 originally called Despair), Munch's best-known painting, is part of a series titled The Frieze of Life, in which he explored the themes of life, love, fear, death and melancholy. His major works include Evening on Karl Johan, The Scream, Ashes, Madonna, Puberty, Death in the Sickroom, Dance of Live, Dead Mother. The Scream has been the target of several high-profile art thefts. In 1994, the version in the National Gallery of Norway was stolen. It was recovered several months later. In 2004, The Scream and Madonna were stolen from the Munch Museum. Both paintings were recovered in 2006. They had sustained some damage and went back on display in May 2008, after undergoing restoration.
