Say the name “Edvard Munch,” and many people will immediately think of "The Scream," the painting of the skull-like face contorted in agony at a bridge; it’s become shorthand for universal anxiety and despair. (That work is not included in the Met Breuer current exhibition Edvard Munch: Between the Clock and the Bed, though four versions of it were made, and the exhibit demonstrates that this theme isn’t confined to just that painting. Worth seeking out: "Sick Mood at Sunset, Despair," (1892) an early incarnation of "The Scream"; it’s being shown outside of Europe for only the second time.)
