The Scream was made by the Norwegian painter and printmaker Edvard Much (1863-1944). For years he had suffered from anxiety, excessive drinking, hallucinations and feelings of persecution. "Illness, insanity, and death were the black angels that kept watch over my cradle and accompanied me all my life," he said. Munchs depictions of intense anguish greatly influenced development of German expressionism in the early 1900s. But he himself entered the clinic of Dr. Daniel Jacobson in 1908, and his treatment included some "electrification", that is, sending electric currents through the brain, which was fashionable for mind conditions at the time. He was stabilised after that. The Scream (1893, further down) is his best-known painting of existential anguish. He created many versions of it. He appears to have drawn inspiration for it from one of the results of a volcano eruption far away. He writes on a diary page headed Nice 22.01.1892:
I was walking along a path with two friends - the sun was setting - suddenly the sky turned blood red - I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence - there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city - my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety - and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.
