Edvard Munch (12 December 1863 – 23 January 1944) was a Norwegian painter and printmaker whose intensely evocative treatment of psychological themes built upon some of the main tenets of late 19th-century Symbolism and greatly influenced German Expressionism in the early 20th century. One of his most well-known works is The Scream of 1893.

16th of October 1854 Irish writer, playwright, and poet, Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin, Ireland.

Happy Birthday!

Although he is often thought of as an author he only published one novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray in 1891.

The play The Importance of Being Earnest is considered to be Wilde’s masterpiece and is continually revived. In 2007, a first edition (number 349 of 1,000) was discovered inside a handbag in an Oxfam shop. Staff were unable to trace the donor. It was later sold for £650!

“Why was I born with such contemporaries?”
