With red paint.. two climate activists smear a Monet painting in Sweden

Two environmental activists threw paint on a painting by French artist Claude Monet in the Swedish capital, Stockholm, before sticking their hands to it, but the painting was not damaged, according to what was announced by the director of the French Musée d’Orsay, which houses this artwork.

“The painting did not suffer any damage,” said museum director Christophe Loribo, during a press conference dedicated to talking about upcoming renovations in his institution between 2025 and 2027, which will not require the closure of the museum.

This artwork, entitled “The Artist’s Garden in Giverny”, dates back to 1900 and is one of the most famous paintings in the world and France.

Loribo explained that the painting was examined by two museum restorers, via video communication. According to Loribeau, the painting was not damaged, not even its water-based frame.

The “Airstile Fatmarker” organization claimed responsibility for what the painting was exposed to, and published a video clip showing two women, one of whom is a nurse and the other a nursing student, as they spray red paint on the glass facade that protects the painting.

“Climate emergency”

The two women were shouting, “The climate is an emergency! Our health is threatened!” Then the police officers stopped them.

One of them said: The situation is critical .. The epidemic was nothing compared to the collapse of the climate .. What is coming is unimaginable .. Children and the elderly die first all the time and will suffer, but no one will be able to survive in time.

For its part, the organization accused the Swedish government of not fulfilling its international obligations regarding environmental policy.
