Climate activists in Spain glued their hands to famous paintings by Francisco de Goya at Madrid’s Prado museum on Saturday.
A video posted on the Twitter account of the Futuro Vegetal campaign group showed a teacher asking visitors not to take photographs of the scene.
The impacted works -from the 18th and 19th centuries- include the artists “La Maja Vestida” and “La Maja Desnuda”: La Maja Vestida and La Maja Desnuda.
A temperature was painted on the wall between the two works: “+1.5 C”

“Last week the UN recognized the impossibility of staying below the 1.5 degree Celsius limit (set in the 2016 Paris climate agreement). We need change now,” read a tweet with a photo of the couple.
The museum said its paintings were undamaged and the graffiti was covered with paint.
“We condemn the use of the museum as a venue for political protest of any kind,” he said.
Police and Futuro Vegetal said two people had been arrested.
