Salvador Dali And Francisco Goya Artwork Is Damaged By Girls Taking Selfies In Museum

Submitted by: littlemissqt 2 months ago in News & Politics


Who's to blame? The girls or the museum who didn't stabilize a freestanding wall?

An excerpt from Petapixel: A pair of artworks by renowned painters Salvador Dali and Francisco Goya were damaged over in Russia after a group of girls posing for selfies accidentally knocked over the structure on which they were being displayed.

The Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) shared the 49-second surveillance camera video above showing what happened.

Russia’s state-run news agency
TASS reports that the four young girls were shooting a selfie on October 27th at the International Arts Center Main Avenue in Yekaterinburg, Russia,

“A group of girls – there were four of them – behaved inadequately,” an employee of the center tells TASS. “As a result, they damaged two works of art, which were on display in a tandem: pictures by Francisco Goya and Salvador Dali.

“Goya’s work had its frame and glass broken. As far as Dali’s artwork is concerned, apart from shattered frame and protective glass, it also suffered damage to the picture itself.”

The artworks that were knocked over. Dali’s art is on the right.

Colonel Irina Vladimirovna Volk is quite a beautiful woman.

But for the art, secure your fragile walls or put up things to prevent people from getting to close to the pieces/unsecured walls. Blame: Museum.

monkwarrior Can't argue with you about the colonel. Very striking woman. Although, to be honest, I probably lack the stamina these days. She looks quite demanding. That's fine when you are young but these days I prefer snuggles and she doesn't look very snuggly.

Lets discuss the real story here, the artwork. Did Dali just copy Goyas work and add a penis and vagina? What is that?

WakeToWood  This artwork has a very interesting story. Personally, I read the essay about it on Edubirdie. If you have difficulties with information searching, you can find [link removed]. There are many books and articles about the history of art.

DuckBoy87 I mentioned this platform, because it clears misunderstanding. [link removed] - I found this article by Edubirdie. It's Spanish, but you can read it with Google translate. So I don't think that everybody of i-am-bored community knows that Goya criticized vicious and lazy in paintworks. Dali mentioned that in his way.

clintbuford Ah, then you don't mind me removing any links that you provide. Because "Help with essays" is off-topic. And links to downloadables (such as pdfs) aren't welcomed.

That display was inherently unstable, 99% museum's fault.

But now it's a new work of art! I call it "White Slab" ;-)

One of Russia's most famous artworks:

Yeah, that was going to happen. Fortunately the Goya is OK. Dali? meh.

Well the first rule of museums is don't touch anything. In their defense there wasn't anything on that side of the wall.
That technically doesn't even count as a freestanding wall. It's just a block up on its side. Who's the dumbass we set that up.

Leslie what's with the Russian woman's lips. It's truly terrifying she looks like a Pokemon
