This is a reproduction of the extremely well known piece of art known as 'The Scream'. Originally produced in pastels by the artist Edvard Munch in 1893, the composition shows a figure with an agonised expression behind a tumultuous orange sky.
He actually created 4 versions of the piece between 1893 and 1910 in both pastels and paintings.
The original German title given to the piece is 'Der Schrei der Natur' which translates as 'The Scream of Nature' and the inspiration for the piece came to Munch whilst he was out walking, from his diary:
One evening I was walking along a path, the city was on one side and the fjord below. I felt tired and ill. I stopped and looked out over the fjord—the sun was setting, and the clouds turning blood red. I sensed a scream passing through nature; it seemed to me that I heard the scream. I painted this picture, painted the clouds as actual blood. The color shrieked. This became 'The Scream'
