Edvard Munch was walking through the mountains of Oslo as he witnessed some nacreous clouds covering the sky. It was an evening and the sun was about to set.
As he kept on gazing towards the sky, he witnessed a blood red sunlight. He further quoted that “I heard a scream passing through the nature”.
The fjord through which Munch was staring the sky was identified later. It was a mountain pass overlooking the city of Oslo.
This became his inspiration to create the masterpiece. He painted plenty of layers with different colors and pigments to depict the nacreous clouds in their best form.
Munch painted this painting in two versions. One with pastel predominantly and other in a lithograph.
While drafting this artwork, the artist was looking for an inspiration in order to visualize the nacreous color scheme. However, a volcanic eruption from Krakatoa stayed in his cognitive memory.
He took references from that incident and embedded some tints of red in the composition to make it more expressive.
