Edvard-Munch.com is down... :)

This must be Google's "darkest" special logo ever. Munch on his painting said

<<I was walking along a path with two friends—the sun was setting—suddenly the sky turned blood red—I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence—there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city—my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety—and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.>>
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Scre ...

... but due to its iconic nature I guess not many really feel about this painting the way the first people looking at it must have felt!

Interestingly, the search for [edvard munch] that the logo links to – google.com/search?q=edvard+mun ... – triggers "News archive results for edvard munch" at the bottom of the SERP.

I use the personalized pg so i didn't see it- not showing there. sloppy when it shows up one place, but not the other. and sometimes you see it on gmail,..sometimes not.

When you click the logo, it produces NSFW results....

I know they are just paintings, but you'd think google would have been more careful

The logo doesn't really "work" this size, as integrated on the Google personalized homepage...

I mean that the logo looks too small at that size, you can't see much in it! It seems blurred... it only works in bigger size...

Es ist irgendwie zu klein und verschmiert wenn man es in der Größe reinstellt, wie Google das auf der personalisierten Homepage da macht....

It really was a nice original wise choice for once.
Very discernable and noticeable .
Original.
Not like the standard Santa Claus logos choices generally picked.
Kudos.
I look for more of the same type of originality.

They did a logo for Dali a while ago, with the melting clocks for the o's, but the logo didn't stay up for the full day. I wonder why. Maybe they didn't get permission and the copyright owners objected?
