Edvard Munch

Munch in 1921
Edvard Munch ( 12 December 1863 – 23 January 1944) was a Norwegian painter and printmaker whose intensely evocative treatment of psychological themes built upon some of the main tenets of late 19th-century Symbolism and greatly influenced German Expressionism in the early 20th century. One of his most well-known works is The Scream of 1893.

The Scream (1893)

“I finished plowing the eight acres south of the gravel road today except the headland.  Mr. Holmes helped me this afternoon with a two horse team.  Father dragged with three horses and he has the piece about half dragged.  We worked the three year old colt on the drag this afternoon.  Very pleasant day but very windy.”
