Royal Academy Screams Art

The work of one of the world's most famous artists is set to arrive at a London gallery this weekend. An exhibition of self-portraits by Edvard Munch, painter of The Scream, opens at the Royal Academy on Saturday. Munch by Himself will allow art lovers a rare insight into the Norwegian artist's consciousness, across the 150 works that are to be displayed. After a life fraught with alcoholism and depression, Munch died aged 80 nearly 60 years ago. Two Munch paintings were stolen last year from the Munch-museet in Oslo, Norway last year. "Madonna" and one of the versions of "The Scream" have not yet been found. For the full story - click the title Irish Art
