are you my prozac?  
"The crowd in Evening on Karl Johan Street is more shocking for the carefully detailed clothing--hat ribbons and so on--in contrast to the faces that have been shorn of individual personality: faces shorthanded into near-skulls expressing the commonality of human loneliness that can never be shared, ‘the anguish of judgement, the torments of death’. Anguish finally gives way to The Scream. The crowd coming towards us is fined-down to the one face that can stand for the whole crowd, as well as for each individual within it. Whether the screaming skull is the long-awaited face of Christian, or of Laura, or of himself, or our own face in a mirror has ceased to matter. There is no separating out the loneliness, because it is all of us."
from Sue Prideaux's book on Edvard Munch: Behind The Scream
