Lost: One Scream

This is the famous painting The Scream by Edvard Munch. For the second time in ten years, it is a hot painting, as it has been stolen from its Oslo gallery. The 1893 painting, tempera and pastel on board, said to be worth about $75 million, was taken by two armed bandits from the Munch Museum in Oslo.

There are actually three versions of this painting. The version in the National Museum was stolen in 1994 on the opening day of the Winter Olympics in Lillehamer. A third is in a private collection.
