Melancholy, Edvard Munch, 1892. In his diary, Munch described the emotions that had inspired this painting: "I was walking along the sea ... The rocks were located on the water as marine beings Mystics ...The dark blue and purple sea saliva and down ... Water sobbed and sucked around the rocks. Long grey striavano clouds the horizon. It seemed that everything had died (as did another world). A landscape of death ".
