Once a painting by Vincent van Gogh, it must now be a work by Edvard Munch: in Oslo, environmental activists have tried to stick to the famous painting “The Scream” – without success. Three women were arrested from Finland, Denmark and Germany.

KClimate activists in Norway have attempted to affix themselves to the frame of a world-famous painting by artist Edvard Munch. Guards at the National Museum in Oslo arrested three people, two of whom attempted to cling to a painting, Oslo police said on Friday. The theme was “The Scream”. The attempt failed, but adhesive residue remained on the glass holder, police wrote on Twitter. No damage was reported to the painting.

“The Scream” is considered the most famous form of Norwegian artist Munch (1863–1944). A version of it from 1893 hangs in the new National Museum of the Scandinavian Country and three others in the Munch Museum, also in the capital Oslo.

The activist group came from Stop Oljeletinga (Stop Oil Exploration). According to police, three women were arrested from Finland, Denmark and Germany – their links to Norway are being investigated. In a statement, the group called for, among other things, the immediate halt of all licenses for the exploration and development of new oil and gas deposits on the Norwegian continental shelf. Norway is one of the largest oil and gas producers in the world.

Tomato soup was thrown at the Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh’s famous work “Sunflower” at the National Gallery in London in mid-October, before activists of the group “Just Stop Oil” stick themselves next to it.
