LONDON - Climate protesters have stormed art galleries across London in recent days in protest of the production and licensing of new fossil fuels, gluing their hands to the frame of a 200-year-old famous English painting, as well as a 15th-century copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s "The Last Supper."On Tuesday, five protesters spray-painted the words "No New Oil" on an exhibition wall at the Royal Academy in London, where a copy of da Vinci’s "The Last Supper" is on display.
They then glued their hands to the frame of the painting, which was believed to have been completed in 1520 by Italian painter Giampietrino, a pupil of Da Vinci.
The original "Last Supper" (ca. 1495-98) is inside the refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, Italy.
