The Scream: "It Won't be Screams of Despair That are Heard on the Night..."
LONDON, April 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The forthcoming sale of Edvard Munch's The Scream looks likely to break records at Sotheby's Impressionist and Modern Art sale on the 2nd May.Â Â
Robert Read, fine art expert at Hiscox says "It won't be screams of despair that are heard on the night...ThisÂ paintingÂ is recognisable the world over and works of thisÂ well known natureÂ hardlyÂ ever come to market.Â Furthermore, as the very top end of the market continues to perform very strongly, looking into my crystal ball I could easily see this iconic work becoming the most expensive ever to be sold at auction."
