We’ve all seen plenty of stories about people who thought they had seen the face of Jesus in pieces of toast or tree stumps – but one art-lover has spotted one of the world’s most famous paintings in a can of Happy Shopper soup.
The Scream is the popular name given to a series of artworks created by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch between 1893 and 1910.
Worth over US$120 million (about £85 million), “The Scream of Nature” as Munch called it has been stolen twice – at one point going missing for two years.
But now it’s turned up in a glass-worker’s soup.
Matthew Richardson, 45, said after he poured out the still-cold cream of tomato soup looked like Munch’s spectral creation with a couple of lumps resembling the character’s hands raised to its ears.
The colour and pattern of the Happy-Shopper soup in the photograph even looked a little like the swirly sunset in Edvard Munch’s painting, reports LeedsLive.
Matthew quickly snapped a photo of the soup before the pattern changed, before tucking in for his supper before working the night shift on Sunday (May 9).
Glass worker Matthew, from Leeds, said: “It made me laugh. I had a bit of a mad dash to get a picture before it changed.
“I’m very familiar with that picture and it looked just like it to me.
“I saw the resemblance to the famous painting ‘The Scream’ straight after I poured the soup out of the can.
“The soup was uncooked so it was a bit lumpy and the lumpiness looked like the hands by the faces in the painting.”
