Priceless Klimt painting attacked by climate activists

Climate activists attacked Gustav Klimt’s painting with an oily, black liquid before another glued him to the frame.

Last Generation Austria members attacked the 1915 painting Death and Life at Leopold Museum, Vienna, to protest their government’s use fossil energies.

After dumping the liquid on the painting, which was not damaged by the glass cover, one protester was forced to leave the museum while another glued his hand to its frame.

The group responded to the protest on Twitter, claiming they were protesting against oil and gas drilling. They called it “a death sentence for society”.


The group posted a video of the incident online. One of the activists can clearly be heard shouting “we have known of this problem for 50 years – we must finally act or the planet will be destroyed.”

Stop the destruction of fossil fuels. We are heading into climate disaster.

In recent months, a variety of activist groups staged many demonstrations. They blocked streets and threw mashed potato at Claude Monet paintings in Germany.
