The Scream by Edvard Munch is a popular painting recognized all over the world. Art critics say the painting captures the anxiety of the human condition. The original painting is thought to be priceless. Perhaps this is why thieves stole it from the museum in broad daylight at gunpoint in 1994. It was recovered three months later and the belief is that the thieves perhaps had hoped to sell it. An alternate version of the painting did go to auction and sold for 119 million dollars. Officials believe because it is so famous and recognizable they likely had a hard time finding a buyer for fear that it was way too ‘hot’.
