Andy Warhol's The Scream (After Munch)

This uniquely-colored screen print by Andy Warhol comes to the market shortly after the announcement that one of four original versions of Edward Munch's The Scream is going to be sold at Sotheby's New York in May for a price that could well exceed $80,000,000. Given that exceptional estimated price for an acknowledged masterwork, one could come to view the 150,000 - 200,000 GBP estimate on this derivative yet highly expressive Warhol print as a bargain indeed.
