"Second Most Famous Work of Art After Mona Lisa"?

Jump to last reply

I just heard a news report call Edvard Munch's Scream series of art works 'the second most famous work of art in the world'. - Well since this is the Europe forum let us even limit this contest to Europe - I would take issue with the Scream series even being the most important or famous or whatever you want to call it art work in Europe behind the Mona Lisa, which obviously is the most famous, by far.

But I can think of many I would call more popular - starting with Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling or Picasso's La Guernica as being more famous than the Scream series, even though the Scream movies with Jason may well have catapulted Munch's work into minds that are generally blank about famous works of art.
