EWYORK (AP) —One of four versions of Edvard Munch’s mas-terpiece “The Scream” will besold this spring in New York,Sotheby’s auction houseannounced Tuesday.Sotheby’s estimates that thework, which has become amodern icon of human anxiety,will sell for $80 million ormore.The 1895 drawing of a manholding his head and scream-ing under a streaked, blood-redsky is being sold by Norwe-gian businessman Petter Olsen,whose father was a friend andpatron of Munch’s. It is theonly version of “The Scream”still in private hands.“I have lived with this workall my life, and its power andenergy have only increasedwith time,” Olsen said. “Now,however, I feel the momenthas come to offer the rest of the world a chance to own andappreciate this remarkablework, which is the only ver-sion of ‘The Scream’not in thecollection of a Norwegianmuseum.”The work will lead Sothe-by’s Impressionist and modernsale on May 2. Olsen said pro-ceeds will go toward the estab-lishment of a new museum, artcenter and hotel in Hvitsten,Norway, where Olsen’s fatherand Munch were neighbors.Aprice tag of $80 millionwould be among the highest-ever for an artwork. Accordingto Sotheby’s, a total of eightworks have sold for $80 mil-lion or more at auction. Therecord is $106.5 million forPicasso’s “Nude, GreenLeaves, and Bust,” sold in2010 by Christie’sin New York.The director of the National Muse-um in Oslo, AudunEckhoff, told TheAssociated Pressthat Norwegianauthoritiesapproved theMunch sale a fewmonths ago.“Our considera-tion was that it isacceptable, sinceseveral versions of ‘The Scream’remain in Norway,”he said.One version of “The Scream” isowned by theNational Museumand two others bythe Munch Muse-um, also in Oslo.Sotheby’s said in a newsrelease that this pastel-on-board version of “The Scream”is the most colorful andvibrant of the four and the onlyversion whose frame washand-painted by the artist toinclude his poem detailing thework’s inspiration.In the poem, Munchdescribed himself “shiveringwith anxiety” and said he felt“the great scream in nature.”The work will be on view atSotheby’s in London startingApril 13 and then in New Yorkstarting April 27.Curator Petra Pettersen of the Munch Museum said shehopes that whoever buys “TheScream” will display it as well.“I hope it will not disappearfrom the public and that it willstill be possible to see it atexhibitions,” she said.

by Norwegian painter Edvard Munchwill be up for auction May 2.
WARSAW, Poland (AP) Few would confuse the glitz of the Academy Awards with aceremony held by a folk artssociety in Poland, but Holly-wood doesn’t want anyone elsehanding out Oscars.So the Academy of MotionPicture Arts and Sciences isdemanding that Poland’s Asso-ciation of Folk Artists stop giv-ing out what it calls the “Peo-ple’s Oskar.”Waldemar Majcher of theAssociation of Folk Artists saidMonday the dispute is theresult a misunderstanding. Buthe also questioned Holly-wood’s demand.Majcher said the “People’sOskar,” was named after OskarKolberg, a 19th-century Polishethnographer who wrote some10,000 Polish folk songs. Stillremembered and respected inPoland, Kolberg died in 1890.In its 10-year history, the“People’s Oskar” — a metalplaque with an engraved imageof Jesus — has been awardedto individual artists, museums,folk festivals and even a breadfair.Last week, Majcher said, hereceived a letter from Polishlawyers representing the Acad-emy of Motion Picture Artsand Sciences protesting the useof the name “Oscar” in its Pol-ish spelling “Oskar.”The letter from Wardynskiand Partners — which Majcherread to The Associated Press— demands the Association of Folk Artists stop using thatname and said the academyhad obtained protection of the“Oscar” trademark in Poland ina law adopted in 2000.The letter said the “verbaltrademark Oscar ... is insepara-bly associated with the Acade-my Awards.”
