Ang Norwegian painter na si Edvard Munch (1863-1944) ang may likha ng sikat na expressionist painting na The Scream. Maraming versions ang expressionist painting na ito — oil, pastel, lithograph, tempera on cardboard — ngunit ang pinaka-kilala ay yaong nasa baba. Ayon sa isinulat ng artist sa kanyang diary (ang kanyang inspirasyon upang ipinta itong obra ay)…
I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.
Ayon sa ibang art critics, ang inilalarawang background ng painting ay halintulad sa nararamdaman ng isang indibidwal na may depersonalization disorder, na parang feeling of distortion of the environment and one’s self. Ganito kaya ang karamdaman ni Munch?
Ewan ko lang ha, pero parang ganun na ganun mismo ang naramdaman ni Atty. Vitaliano Aguirre nang sinasabon (na naman) ni Sen. Miriam Santiago ang prosecution team.
