Edvard Munch's masterpiece The Scream has sold at auction for $120m (£74m), making it one of the most valuable works of art ever sold.
The 1895 pastel was bought at Sotheby's in New York City. Bidding began at some $50m, and lasted for just 12 minutes.
The work is one of four in a series by the Norwegian expressionist artist and was the only one still owned privately.
