In 1895, the first prints of this lithograph were printed in Berlin in black and white, although the practice of color was experienced in large Parisian lithography workshops, it was used very little in Germany. Munch thus in a 1st time, CRY presented in black on which he later added different color combinations in his hand. he thus transformed his prints into works of art unique, comparable to his paintings.
the original work is actually a series of five works (three paintings, a pastel and a lithograph) made between 1893 and 1917.
To understand the works of Munch, it is important to know certain elements of his life. at an early age, he was confronted with illness and death - his mother and one of his sisters were swept away by illness while still a child. The illness continued Munch all his life, being himself of weak constitution; he was always afraid of death and was subject to many episodes of depression. His expressionism is thus marked by the desire to symbolize human emotions - especially anxiety and pain. The Cry is also part of the "Friesian Life" constituted by Munch himself, a series of paintings that form an allegory of the unfolding of life, from birth to death.
As in 1895, the colorized version was entirely made by hand thus making each copy of this lithography unique. Each color and its location have been carefully studied in respect of the original work.
