Three of Warhols prints, inspired by works of Edvard Munch, are coming up for auction at Sotheby’s, at an estimated combined worth of £500,000 to £750,000: The Scream (After Munch), Madonna and Self-Portrait with Skeleton’s Arm (After Munch) and Eva Mudocci (After Munch).

Warhol’s interpretation of the Norwegian artist’s images created works that have become iconic in their own right.

Yet Munch’s original angst, emotional turmoil and despair persevere, despite of, or perhaps emphasised by, Warhol’s distinctive style.
