The painter Edvard Munch, most famously known for his work "The Scream" had this to say about Kragerø: "Many a sleepless night my thoughts and dreams go to Kragerø. To my daily walks over the hill beyond Kragero. Up there the wind blew in from the sea. Behind me the fragrant pines, out there the waves breaking over the skerries...My regards to Kragerø, the pearl of coastal towns".
