SUMMARY

Like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Edvard Munch’s original 1893 version of The Scream is also a famous painting that has been stolen. However, unlike the enigmatic Lady da Vinci, Munch’s psychological anguish portrait has been stolen twice. It was abducted on February 12, 1994 from the National Gallery in Oslo, Norway and later recovered through an undercover operation. Ten years later, the 1910 version of Munch’s Scream along with the artist’s enigmatic Madonna was removed from the Munch Museum on August 22, 2004, at gunpoint. The paintings were recovered after two years. Some of the other events that happened on August 22 are mentioned below.
