These fascinated me. What stories they could tell. They are Edward Munch's gnarly old paintbrushes. It just goes to show that you don't need the finest materials and equipment to create masterpieces - or look after your kit very well. 'The Scream' sold for a record $119 million dollars in 2012. I'm particularly taken with the third from the left. It looks like Munch did not just use it for painting. Perhaps it ended up so stumpy because he used it for scouring something. The second from the right hand end looks like the type of brush that might be given away free on the front of a kid's comic.
Adobe have digitally recreated these through clever 3D wizardry.. Photoshop and Sketch users can use them to paint their own version of one of the world's most iconic paintings. They could be in with a chance of winning a trip to Vegas and five grand for their troubles.
