‘Scream’ heist back in court as appeal opens
An appeals trial into the theft of the expressionist masterpiece “The Scream” has opened in Oslo as prosecutors seek to convict five men they believe carried out the robbery and harboured the stolen artworks. “The Scream”, along with another Edvard Munch painting, “Madonna”, were snatched from Oslo’s Munch Museum in August 2004 in a daytime raid by two armed and masked robbers. Oslo police recovered the works in August last year. The circumstances of their recovery and whereabouts while stolen remain shrouded in mystery.
