Edvard Munch's The Scream - has sold for a record $US119.9 million

The Scream is not my favorite Munch painting, but I understand that the Iconic Pastel from 1895 has a high value in the market.
Edvard Munch created at least four versions of The Scream. He also worked out lithographs and other graphic versions of the motive. Thousands of "copies" or private versions have been made by other artists.
I have never made my own version of this motive except the photo of Tullen and her pimiento in 2001.

However some other paintings first made by E.Munch has been part of my painting education and here you will find some examples of these.
I do not believe that my versions can get any million auction price, but someone have once said that copies of new versions can be even better than the originals.
The Day After (E.M. 1894-5)
Lonely or The Voice (E.M. 1894-5)
Summer Day (E.M. 1904 - 08)
Red and White.(E.M. 1894)
Landscape or From Åsgårdstrand (E.M. 1904)
The Embrace or Vampire (E.M.1893-4)
Shame or Ashes (E.M.1894)
The red Suffragette or Madonna (E.M. 1895- 1902)
and my own self portrait as Hans Jaeger (E.M. 1889)

Painting picture by picture, I followed the impressions my eye took in at heightened moments.
I painted only memories, adding nothing, no details that I did not see.
