Never know go and have a look at that page Reynolds. Thanks for joining us here on the briefing. Twenty six minutes past twelve finally today. This scream is one of the most famous paintings in the world, but an expert at the British Museum has told the telegraph newspaper here in London that we've been misinterpreting it all along. Let's get more on this now with the art critic is still love it still. It's called the scream and that appears to depict a man screaming. But apparently, it's not as simple as that. Exactly. And the man's not screaming tool. What it is is he's hearing the world around him screaming, which actually seems rather pertinent to today's political forum. But yeah, this is an image that MLK Edvard. Mo the Norwegian artists created actually there's more than one screen as full screams. But there's also a series of black and white prints that he did. And it shows a man walking along a bridge in Oslo. And he's on a walk to his friends background very small, and you can see the world around him echoing and vibrating through a series of circular marks that replicate the face and and the mouth of the figure in the front, but actually he is silent. And he's trying to block out the tormenting noise of the world around him. When you look at the paintings full name, be scream of nature that does sort of invite you into to take notice of you more hints as towards really perhaps being trying to be said here. But do you think the oddest monk was deliberately trying to invite observers to to look closer and beyond the face value? Always was the misinterpret the the ability for it to be misinterpreted with do you think that perhaps passed him buyer? Then I think you'll right on both counts. I think there was the there is the opportunity to look at work. Of art and go beyond the superficial pictorial plane to find another deeper narrative, and obviously the interpretation will vary on who looks at it. Because we all bring our own baggage to works of art. And there is no right to a wrong way of interpreting work of art because it's not like a science or maths where there is only one correct answer. In fact, there's more questions than onces. Well, you what you said earlier reminded me of something that I was discussing ones with the director of collections at the National Gallery. Susan Foister is her name. We were discussing on that occasion. The painting called BA fighting Tamara. And we were looking at the rather varied interpretations that people have of that work. It's often simplified as the old making way for the new the some people even think that it might represent Brexit. You referenced earlier that the the scream could could also be interpreted to represent the current political climate. In many parts of the world. Do you think it matters? How we interpret our is is the secret to good odd. Perhaps how it relates to any given point in time. Exactly. The secret to good art is that it's timeless and talking about the fighting Timur rare. I mean that was one of Turner's greatest pieces, and I've even had people talk to me about it. Particular man, who was a druid in pagan was convinced that actually Turner was trying to describe some sort of a pagan event, and which he wasn't, you know, so everybody has their own interpretation of great works of art and the more abstract. The work goes the more interpretations are available. Well, several versions of the screen will go on the show the British Museum here in London next month. So if you're interested in forming your own interpretation, you'll know exactly where to go is still loved a pleasure to be speaking with you. Thanks for joining us here on the briefing.
