I've been thinking more about the poor Munch paintings. The Scream was stolen before, it was missing for a couple of years. The Scream is just a painting on paper, it's very fragile.
But Madonna is a bigger loss. Munch got excommunicated from the church for painting such an erotic Madonna. Munch had a very strange life. This painting has a very strange history. Poor beautiful Madonna, stolen away where nobody can see her.

My art school had a little Munch oil painting. It wasn't a big important Munch work, just a small landscape painting. I studied that painting a lot, and I enjoyed how he worked the oil paint. I learned a lot about painting from Munch.


I especially like Kuniyoshi's Cat Pictures.
