"The Scream" on View at MoMA This Fall

Edvard Munch's "The Scream," one of the most well-known and expensive paintings in the world, is coming to the Museum of Modern Art this fall. You can see the artwork from October 24 through April 29.

Bought by a private collector in May this year NY financier Leon Black paid $119.9 million for the art work, the highest price ever bid for a painting, 

The pastel-on-board version owned by Black, painted in 1895, is one of four created by Munch between 1893 and 1910. Black's is considered the most vibrant and colorful.  “As an iconic image, The Scream has garnered worldwide attention for its stark portrayal of the human condition,” said Glenn D. Lowry, Director of The Museum of Modern Art.
