Norwegian artist Edvard Munch described his well known painting like this:

I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.

Then, artist Sebastian Cosor made this animated version of Munch's scene showing us the reason behind “The Scream”.
