A tiny inscription was found on the painting by the famous artist Edvard Munch “The Scream”, which caused a lot of controversy among scientists.
“The Scream” is one of the most popular and famous works of the author. For many years, experts did not give much meaning to the words “could only be drawn by a madman”, suggesting that they could have been written by someone from the audience in the gallery. Writes about this BBC.
However, the staff of the National Museum of Norway conducted several new studies that showed that the artist himself was the author of the mysterious inscription. Scientists analyzed the handwriting and compared it with the personal diary and notes of Edvard Munch.
“The inscription undoubtedly belongs to Munch himself. The handwriting, as well as the events that took place in 1895, when the artist first showed the painting in Norway, confirm this,” said curator May Britt Guleng.
Note that in 1994 the painting was stolen from a Norwegian art museum. After a while, she was discovered by British detectives during a covert operation.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, the famous painting by Sandro Botticelli was sold for more than $ 92 million. “Portrait of a Young Man with a Medallion” was painted in 1480 and was estimated by experts at at least $ 80 million. But still, the painting went to a Russian-speaking buyer, whose name is unknown.
