CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
The very first prints of this lithograph were issued in black and white in Berlin in 1895. Even if the practice of colour printing was tested out in the famous Parisian workshops, it was seldom used in Germany. Therefore, Munch issued his “scream” at first in black print on which he added afterwards various colours by hand. By this way, he turned his printings into unique master pieces that were indeed comparable to his paintings.
