They cleaned off the tomato soup

Last week, two climate change protesters threw the contents of two cans of tomato soup on this Van Gogh painting.

They also glued themselves to the wall.

It was thankfully clean when I visited the National Gallery yesterday.

The only evidence the protesters was the slight change in the wall colour where they painted over the glue stain.

  1. They are “culture terrorists”. I don’t see any meaning in their actions. Just like kids throwing tantrum when they cannot get their favourite toys. Glad to see that the painting is safe!
