Edvard Munch - "The Scream"

Sotheby's announced today that on May 2nd they will be auctioning off the only one of four Munch "Scream" paintings still privately owned. (the other three are displayed in Norwegian museums).

"Officials there estimate it could bring more than $80 million."

"For the kinds of bidders who are behind the auction market’s current high prices — extremely rich collectors who gravitate toward blue-chip artists and recognizable images — “The Scream” will likely seem an irresistible trophy."
