Linda Jones and Craig Kausen, daughter and grandson of fabled animation director and artist, Chuck Jones, have donated the Chuck Jones lithograph, The Scweam, to the Munch Museum in Oslo Norway in response to the recent theft of Edvard Munch's The Scream this past week.
In a letter to the museum's curators, Craig Kausen wrote, "When we heard of the tragic theft of The Scream we were heartbroken to think that your patrons, visitors, and Munch admirers would be unable to enjoy this masterpiece while the despots and fiends are tracked down and this work of genius is returned."
Continued Kausen, "Although nothing will replace Mr. Munch's masterpiece work, we are offering Mr. Jones' rendition to hang in its stead during its, hopefully, brief absence."
