I read something about that somewhere... I dunno, maybe it was, but if not, and it shows up somewhere, it's authenticity will forever be questioned...

OH!
THAT WOULD BE DEVASTATING!

So devastating it requires capitals.
If it's really true, I might even cry.

It would be a shame. I doubt it though. Its probably hanging up in the living room of some bastards house somewhere.

What makes you guys think that it wasnt burnt up?

Why would it be so devestating? Does the potential destruction of these works really have that much of an effect on your life?

I donno, I haven't heard much about that.

I saw it in Toronto.

It's sad if it happened.

think they got those guys by now, happened last year so..

but whats really funny is that today, two thieves tried to steal two other pieces made by munch, they succeded, but they only took copies, so they thought they stole paintings worth millions and stole copies for a few dollars :P

all over the news :P

I'm not so self centred as to judge how devestating something is purely by how much of an effect it has on my life.

I really like The Scream. It's jsut a very interesting painting.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 12/12/05 - 6:10:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Niffty paintings. I say conspiracy is involved in this. But then again, I'm paranoid, so, yeah...
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 12/12/05 - 6:12:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
Man, that would really suck.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 12/12/05 - 7:24:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I sure hope not.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 12/24/05 - 3:35:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
It could've been.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 12/24/05 - 3:38:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
The masterpiece lives on even if the original is gone... so. I don't think anyone should worry about it.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 12/24/05 - 3:57:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
I feel sorry for those guys. On one hand they did burn it. What sad specimens of humanity they must be. What an empty gesture. Even worse, perhaps it is a ploy. Maybe years later we'll discover it in some unimaginably rich guy's personal collection.

No, they recovered The Scream not that long ago.
