In the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edward Munch, Norway issued a stamp with a picture of his most famous work.
The stamp reproduces the four versions of famous “The Scream”. One of them was auctioned in May 2012 by anonymous private collector for $120 million.
Since then, the picture is the most expensive piece of art ever gone under the hammer. To buy one of the stamps that will be available from February 15, it’s enough to pay 2 euro 70 cents only.
Excursions and tours, conferences, film screenings, concerts, theatrical performances and literary presentations will be held throughout the whole year in honor of the anniversary of the outstanding Norwegian arist. The highlight of the program will be the largest-ever exhibition “Munch 150” at the National Gallery in Oslo: art lovers will be able to observe more than 250 works by the artist from 2 June to 13 October 2013.
