Munch painted The Scream in 1893. Nothing happened. In 1895, he made a black and white lithograph of the same image – it established his reputation. His “utterly dynamic” printmaking was both popular and influential, especially among Germany’s Expressionists. “One really can’t talk of Munch’s greatness without considering the prints alongside the paintings.”
