As you may recall, The Scream, by Edvard Munch was recently stolen (Sunday August 22nd, 2004). Along with Madonna, it was burgled from The Munch Museum (Munch Museet) in Oslo, Norway. Many news outlets picked up the story as an odd human interest feature, and left it as a one-time curiosity. Most reports were inaccurate about which Scream was actually taken. Munch created several versions of the image. The original incarnation is housed in the National Gallery (Nasjonalgalleriet, Norway) also in Oslo.
