Who was the man behind The Scream, the iconic painting that so acutely expresses the anguish of the twentieth century?

Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944) was twenty-eight when he embarked on a lifelong effort to paint his `soul's diary' - and began a perverse love affair with self-destruction. This intimate and moving life of the Norwegian artist explores his turbulent early years, his time as a recluse, and his intense efforts to paint not what he saw, but what he experienced.
