    SO, the blood-red sky in ''The Scream'' might not have been a pigment of Edvard Munch's imagination after all.

    Three researchers report in the February issue of Sky & Telescope that it would have been the color Munch saw as he took a sunset stroll along the Ljabrochausseen road (now Mosseveien) in the port city of Christiania (now Oslo) in late 1883 or early 1884. At that time the detritus from the eruption of the Indonesian volcano Krakatoa, on Aug. 27, 1883, had just reached Norway.[ . . . . . ]

    I guess there are no art lovers on this forum?

    Actually, I have a friend who have a very similar Munch painting, but for me the red sky reminds me of the most red sky I have ever seen from my house. It was the night after the Nice attack last summer, where 86 people were killed and hundreds injured. I was watching President Hollande speaking on TV when the sun was rising with this symbolic red sky...
