The Scream
Seventh and last MOC in my series of "famous paintings and photographs." "The Scream" was painted by the Expressionist artist Edvard Munch between 1893 and 1910. It portrays a dramatic scene of a figure screaming in front of a fiery sky. The sky is my favorite part of the build. The hardest part of this scene was the photo taking. I struggled to get the correct angle. Even now, I'm not quite sure it is correct. Enjoy!
About this creation
As you can see, the figure's expression doesn't exactly match. So instead, I tried to mimic the atmosphere, sky, and walkway as close as possible.


So which has been your favorite out of the series? Let me know in the comments!

I like the kneeling knight scene best, but, there are other very interesting ones that you did nt do yet, as of this one, I don t see the painting in it, I like the lego scene, but, its 3-d, as the painting is designed to be flat, 2-d, mosaic would have translated better, you still have a funny scene though, lol!

Quoting Builder Allan Excellent indeed! It really is diffucult to capture the more serious (or sinister) tones of a painting or photo when re-creating it in lego but to me that is a part of the re-creation. I agree you have done very well in capturing Munch's unique strokes and if the angle of photo is off, it is only insignificantly so :-) A nice choice of minifig-head too! My favorite in your series must be the 'lunch atop..' or this one - i am a bit divided as both are very good and i am from the same country as Munch. Anyway, i have enjoyed the entire series and hope that you will revive it some day? I have two suggestions if you do decide to build more, though they both might be a challenge. One is a photo, the capturing of the reichstag in berlin in 1945. And the other is a painting by wilhelm marstrand, King Christian IV losing his eye in battle.
Thanks for your input. Not only was this series enjoyable, it also gave me a chance to discover and study the details of paintings and photographs, and the history that surrounds them. I will take your suggestions to consideration. In fact, this MOC was suggested to me in the same way. You never know, I might just pop one in now and again in the future! -LB Sr.

This is my favorite from your Lego edition of paintings. It is very cool how you did the background and the bridge!

Quoting Jared . The background has some excellent details, but the choice of the figure for the screaming man... absolutely fantastic! Great creation!
Thanks for looking and more importantly, thanks for your suggestion. -LB Senior

Quoting MortalSwordsman . I like this a lot. The original is very haunting, yours is more comical. I don’t mean that in a bad way – mini figs are just built that way. The bridge and sky is fantastic. I agree that the water could be curvier but let’s not forget you are using square bricks in a very limited space. My favourite so far is ‘Lunch atop a Skyscraper’ but this is a close second.
Haha, yes. I totally agree. This minifigure didn't quite do justice here. -LB Senior

Great use of bricks to capture Munch's distinctive brush strokes.

Quoting George Staples Pretty cool to take this photo with different depths of layers. I think the water needs a little more blue tho.
Good point, I agree. Thanks for mentioning it! -LB Senior

Quoting Halhi 141 Very good, the bridge is excellent. The sky is good, but I think that it would allow for more detail if it was made using plates rather than bricks. The water is also good, but it could be more curvy (perhaps using some more SNOT techniques?) Other than that, it looks great.
Thanks for your constructive criticism. I agree, the water wasn't as good as I wanted it to be. -LB Senior
