Scientists have established that the author of the mysterious inscription on the famous painting by Evard Munch “The Scream” was the Norwegian artist himself.

In the upper left corner of the work there is a barely discernible pencil inscription: “Only a madman could draw this.”

For a long time, art critics debated how it could have appeared. Some believed that it was made by Munch himself, who had experienced mental health problems during his life, others assumed that it was the work of an unknown visitor to the exhibition, dissatisfied with the content of the canvas.

Specialists from the National Gallery of Norway examined the painting using infrared scanning and came to the conclusion that the author of the inscription was Munch himself. To do this, they compared the handwriting with which it was made with the artist’s letters and diaries.
