Munch Museum reports the recovered Scream is badly damaged.

The 1893 Scream stolen from the Munch Museum  in 2004 and recovered August 2006, is irreparably damaged, the  Munch Museum states in its report on the recovered picture.  At first it was thought the damage to the lower left hand corner was merely slight  impact damage that could be repaired.  However, the Museum has now produced a two hundred page report which  shows the damage to be worse than initially  assumed.  Severe water damage to the lower left hand corner has irreparably damaged The Scream which, the report states, “cannot be repaired.”
