I got to see one of the SCREAM paintings in Oslo in 1969. It was situated right next to a window! As I recall, all the museums I visited that year were woefully under-guarded. In Amsterdam in the Rjiksmuseum, I spent a long while in a 12X12 foot dimly lit room all by myself with about six or seven Vermeers! None of the canvasses were too large to fit under my shirt! A ways across the museum there was a single permanent guard in the room with the huge "Nightwatch" by Rembrandt which had a velvet rope to hold back people from approaching the canvas.

Ah, I still think longingly of those delicious Vermeers!
