About two weeks after the attack on the Mona Lisa, environmental activists in France once again threw soup on a work of art. This time it was a painting by Monet.

As the “Riposte alimentaire” movement previously posted on Twitter, on Saturday, two activists poured soup over Claude Monet’s work “Spring” at the Museum of Fine Arts in Lyon. The museum confirmed this to French media.

The local governorate said that the two women were arrested. Culture Minister Rachida Dati expressed her lack of understanding of the crime and assured the museum team of her support.

After the incident, the museum announced that it would file a complaint on charges of vandalism, according to Le Parisien newspaper. The oil painting is protected by a glass plate. His condition is now being examined.

“Riposte alimentaire” is a collective that emerged from the French movement “Dernière Rénovation” (Recent Renewal). Through its work, the association aims to bring about a radical change in society on the climate and social levels.

The name “Riposte alimentaire” can be roughly translated as “anti-food strike”.
