Local weather activists in Spain glued their arms to well-known work by Francisco de Goya in Madrid’s Prado museum on Saturday.
A video posted to the Twitter account of the marketing campaign group Futuro Vegetal confirmed a docent asking guests to not take footage of the scene.
The impacted works – from the 18th and nineteenth centuries – embody the artists “La Maja Vestida” and “La Maja Desnuda”: The Clothed Maja and the Bare Maja.
A temperature was painted on the wall between the 2 works: “+1.5 C”
“Final week the UN acknowledged the impossibility of holding us under the restrict of 1.5 Celsius (set in the 2016 Paris local weather settlement). We’d like change now,” a tweet with a photograph of the pair stated.
The museum stated its work had not been broken and that the graffiti was painted over.
“We condemn using the museum as a spot to make a political protest of any sort,” it stated.
Police and Futuro Vegetal stated two folks had been arrested.
Futuro Vegetal stated the pair had been eliminated utilizing a solvent.
This marks the most recent occasion in a string of protests by local weather activists, impacting well-known artworks.
Protesters tried to attach themselves to the glass masking Vermeer’s “Woman with a Pearl Earring” and others threw tomato soup on Van Gogh’s “The Sower” and one among his Sunflowers work.
These works had been coated.
All this comes forward of the GOP27 local weather change convention in Egypt, set to happen beginning on Sunday.
