Did You Know the Story Behind ‘The Scream’?
So, have you ever taken a closer look at the famous painting “The Scream” by Edvard Munch? It’s about 130 years old, and guess what, it’s all about anxiety! Munch had a pretty tough family history with mental health, so he really knew the feelings inside out.
He once spoke about this one time when he was out walking, and the sky turned all fiery during the sunset. It felt to him like even nature was screaming! But here’s the interesting bit – the figure in the center isn’t actually screaming. They are covering their ears, surrounded by a world that seems to be spinning out of control. And there, in the background, two people are just walking by, unaware and undisturbed.
Isn’t “The Scream” such a vivid depiction of what anxiety feels like? Feeling totally overwhelmed and feeling utterly alone in it.
