Google Art

I was just on my way to Google to look something up and I was greeted by this artwork replacing the usual:

Google Art Scream

Does anyone know what the reference is or what it is in relation to? Got me beat. Different. I was thinking it might be in relation to some significant date that is not relevant in Australia. Then again I might just be ignorant.

UPDATE: Thanks to Richard and  Paul who identified that it is Edvard Munch’s Birthday, most famous for his painting “The Scream” which was the basis for this Google Art.

    Perhaps Google has developed a technology to see the face of the visitor of the website.
    In your case google caught your ugly gab sitting in front of the computer ..
    Thus … The scream 🙂
