  1. ^ Edvard Munch - One of several versions of the painting The Scream (or The Cry), National Gallery, 1893, Oslo, Norway, WebMuseum: Munch, Edvard - Among theories advanced to account for the reddish sky in the background is the artist's memory of the effects of the powerful volcanic eruption of Krakatoa, which deeply tinted sunset skies red in parts of the Western hemisphere for months during 1883 and 1884, about a decade before Munch painted The Scream. This explanation has been disputed by scholars, who note that Munch was an expressive painter and was not primarily interested in literal renderings of what he had seen.
