As a child Munch was often in poor health and he drew and painted to occupy himself. His mother died when he was young and he was raised by an aunt and his father who Edvard described as "nervous and obsessively religious to the point of psychoneurosis. From him I inherited the seeds of madness."
The Scream series was created between 1893 and 1910. One of these paintings includes the following poem by Edvard on it's frame: " I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature."
