Rare $700,000 Munch aquatint excites collectors at Christie's

After The Scream set the auction record for any piece of art in May 2012, Christie's will offer a rare Edvard Munch aquatint as part of its forthcoming Old Master, Modern and Contemporary Prints auction.

Held on March 20 in London, the sale will offer the chance to own a Munch work without paying the $119.9m seen by The Scream. 1896's Young Woman on the Beach, one of only 11 known impressions, will be sold with a $500,000-700,000 estimate.

"Munch produced only a small number of colour aquatints over a very short period of time, between 1896 and 1897 in Paris, of which he only made very few impressions," said Christie's head of prints, Tim Schmelcher.

"The artist inked each print individually in different colour combinations, and as a result, they are all unique and vary greatly in mood and character."

Paul Fraser Collectibles has a superb range of art and art collectibles for sale, including top names such as Monet, Renoir, Picasso and Dali.
