Blogged this a few hours ago, where I glancingly noted what I'll mention here, which is that it seems to me a lot more reminiscent of the last time one of Munch's version of The Scream was stolen (and held for ransom) in 1994.

turning off href (hopefully) and noting that "Madonna*" is a much more satisfying image than "Scream," which has been appropriated into every sort of tacky knickknack and parody imaginable.

*Munch did several versions of this. This jpeg is not meant to imply this is the one that was stolen, but it certainly looked more or less like this.

I just know Professor Moriarity was behind this.

At least somebody's getting a laugh out of it....

Edward: Well, yeah; a nude-Madonna outfit requires a higher MPAA rating than a Scream mask and black cloak. ;)

I just know Professor Moriarity was behind this.

I was thinking Colonel Mustard.

I'm thinking it was swiped by some perpetually annoyed psychotherapists, and will be returned in a slightly altered state. One that removes any value it once had, is likely the intention.

My favorite is "Vampyr", http://www.munchauksjonen.no/kataloger/2001-6/16.htm, where he has an ex- sucking blood from his neck. One wonders why any woman ever dated him, he was completely off his trolley.

" which has been appropriated into every sort of tacky knickknack and parody imaginable."

Which is fair enough. Incidently, I once saw an exhibition of a Munch's work over his lifetime. He was hospitalized for his depression and mania, and was actually cured. Unfortunately, the paintings he produced afterwards were, well, crap compared to the work he did when he was swinging-from-the-lightbulb-looney.
