Beauty can be found in many shapes and forms, especially in art. The Scream by Edvard Munch portrays anguish and hopelessness. This is not a stereotypically beautiful scene, yet it is still a striking piece of work nonetheless. The bold brush strokes and unique style of the artist really catch the viewer's eye at first. However, there is something compelling about this painting that keeps the viewer from looking away. Perhaps it is the man's ghostly face, or the turmoil shown in the sky. Whatever it may be, this painting is hauntingly beautiful, and often times its the ones that aren't so picturesque that leave a lasting impression.
