never loved a gif so much

this is kinda creepy tho

The story behind this painting is very interesting, though.  The artist’s mother was very sick, so the house was always filled a suffocating silence.  This painting depicts him wanting to scream, but having to be silent, hence the anguished expression.  In the whole painting you see figures in the background, one of which is his sister.

I could stare at this for hours.

This is horrifying

I may or may not have just shit myself…

wow

Animating Scream is maybe not the best thing to ever happen. This is so disturbing.

This GIF is cool as fuck, but I think that tidbit above isn’t really accurate.
I believe there is evidence that Munch had been planning this painting before his mother fell ill. It is part of a series. Here is what he wrote about the moment that directly inspired the composition:
 I went along the road with two friends—
The sun setSuddenly the sky became blood—and I felt the breath of sadnessA tearing pain beneath my heartI stopped—leaned against the fence—deathly tiredClouds over the fjord of blood dripped reeking with bloodMy friends went on but I just stood trembling with an open woundin my breast trembling with anxiety I heard a huge extraordinaryscream pass through nature.

I also love that it isn’t actually a painting; it’s oil pastels and charcoal on cardboard, and only about 11”x14”.
