Modern Interpretations of "The Scream"

The most famous painting of Edvard Munch is "The Scream". You might like it, you might hate it, but you can't ignore it.
The Norwegian artist created several versions of "The Scream" in various media between the years 1893-1910. Two of these paintings were stolen, but don't worry - they're back.
In his diary, he described his inspiration for the image thus:

"I was walking along a path 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."

Here are a few examples that were inspired by "The Scream".
