... ? Guardian Unlimited | Arts features | Carry on screamingHow many Screams are there? Reports of the theft of a Scream from an Oslo museum at the weekend described it as one of four versions of Edvard Munch's despairing masterpiece. But depending on how you calculate it, there are anything from two to 50 versions of this iconic image - although the historian who has it at 50, in a book published by Taschen, may, I feel, have drunk too much absinthe trying to get into that symbolist fin-de-siècle mood.

... ? Guardian Unlimited | Arts critics | Jonathan Jones: Dim, cloned conservativesThe French artist Jean Dubuffet gave the name "art brut", raw or wild art, to the untutored graphic productions of children, the insane and graffitists. A statement signed this week by Tony Blair deserves to be recognised as "criticism brut" - ignorant, clumsy, yet a stroke of raw genius. In apparent unawareness of 50 years of modern thinking, Blair and 121 MPs have signed a statement published by Keep Britain Tidy in response to its report that councils spend £27m a year erasing street daubs. Endorsing the hygienic organisation's call for zero tolerance of teenagers with spray cans, the MPs declare baldly that "graffiti is not art, it's crime".
