Anxiety (Norwegian: Angst) is an oil-on-canvas painting created by the expressionist artist Edvard Munch in 1894. It's currently housed in Munch Museum in Oslo, Norway. Many art critics[who?] feel that Anxiety is closely related to Munch’s more famous piece, The Scream (1893). The faces show despair and the dark colors show a depressed state. Many critics also believe it’s meant to show the emotions of heartbreak and sorrow.[1]
