The Scream Sold $107 Million

Edvard Munch 1895 painting The Scream sold for a world record $107 Million when Tobias Meyer dropped the hammer at Sotheby’s New York.

The final selling price was $119,922,500 when including the 12% premium paid to Sotheby’s, and is the highest price ever paid for a work of art sold at auction.

The global art market is alive and well as billionaires need a place to invest fiat paper money

The Scream was inspired by Munch in 1892 when he was walking beside an Oslo, Norway fjord and he sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.

Edvard Munch was so inspired he painted four different The Scream’s. This Petter Olsen owned version is the only one available for sale.
