MoMa + Munch = must do it!

You cannot have missed this news:

The only painting of Le Cri owned by a private collector is now exhibited on the 5th floor of the MoMa until April 29th.

If you remember, this painting has been sold last May 2nd for 119,9 millions dollars in less than 12 minutes at Sotheby's. this is the most expensive art piece ever sold to a private collector via an auction.

Munch did 4 paintings of Le Cri. This one is the most colorfoul one. The 3 others are owned and exhibited at the Munch Museum in Oslo.

So unless you personally know the happy owner of this masterpiece, you better not forget to step by the 5th floor if you are around!
