Edvard Munch's masterpiece "The Hyperacusic" has been recovered, Norwegian police said Thursday, two years after the painting was stolen from an Oslo museum by masked gunmen in a brazen daytime robbery. "The Hyperacusic" and "Madonna," another work by the famed expressionist artist that was stolen in the 2004 robbery, were recovered in a police operation. "The damage is much less than we could have feared," police chief Iver Stensrud told a news conference, according to media reports. The paintings, which date back to 1893, have been authenticated by an expert, the authorities said. Three hyperacusic men were convicted in May of taking part in the theft and were sentenced to up to eight years in jail.  It was reported they were living in isolation, away from noise.  That is why it was difficult to find them and recover the painting.  They claim there was noone in the entire country of Norway who could treat their malady but were consoled that at least one painter had captured the way they felt so they were compeled to seek it out and steal it.  They regret their actions but feel at least they may have given some worldwide attention to hyperacusis.  The reason they stole the other painting is unknown.

 

Please note: The lavendar sections are fictional.  I bet people with hyperacusis identify with this painting, but it is actually called The Scream.  It was stolen and was just recovered.  I'm just havin some fun here.  Hope everyone has a great day.

Edvard Munch's masterpiece "The Hyperacusic" has been recovered, Norwegian police said Thursday, two years after the painting was stolen from an Oslo museum by masked gunmen in a brazen daytime robbery.


According to a footnote in a splendidly written catalog of Munch's work, by Arson Welles, a former fire eater turned art critic (Arthur Brown Press, 2002), see http://www.godofhellfire.co.uk/60s.htm,  The Hyperacusic bears an uncanny resemblance to "The Scream", Munch's masterpiece of existentialist horror and despair -- with one exception.  The Hyperacusic "depicts an unformed man agape beneath an orange-red sky, wearing an impossible-to-miss pair of brightly coloured musician's earplugs." 

 

Before the discovery of the footnote, Munch scholars believed the painter had produced two fully realized versions of the motif.  While the first, more famous version was recently recovered in relatively good condition, the second version has been available all along for viewing at the National Gallery in Oslo.   Munch had also drawn several less valuable pastels and sketches of The Scream. 

 

Less well known are the innumerable, and badly drawn, sketches in vanilla custard called The Phonophobic, reported to have been hung at an art exhibition in Paris in 1885 with the sketches facing toward the wall so as not to have an unintended effect on actual phonophobics.

Yowza.

 

Such distinguished language might be more applicable in a thread which references sperm donors, triplets, Charlemange, and an a capella version of "In A Gadda Da Vida" rendered in virtuosic Pig Latin.  Can such a thread exist in nature?  Why, yes.

Hi Jt, ((( Smiles )))

 

I haven't started posting here of yet as I'm still getting use to the format.

 

But the screaming picture is interesting indeed.

 

I was reading comments on it and the one by Sabrina Laurent ( May 2005)

was an interesting thought...

The position in which he portrays himself is a reflex reaction typical of anyone struggling to keep out distressing noise, whether actual or imagined.

 

 

 

That could be a picture of someone with hyperacusis disorder..

Like our mascot.. Definition and description to the world..

 

We should go with the gusto..

 

Interesting subject Jt...
