TWO eco-idiots have hurled mash potatoes over a £100million Clade Monet masterpiece before gluing themselves to the floor.

The pair, part of the ‘Letzte Generation’ (Last Generation) climate activist group, pelted the spuds at the Les Meules painting.

The pair pelted the Monet painting with mashed potato

They had entered the Barberini Museum in Germany on Sunday wearing hi-vis vests before their daft stunt.

Museum-goers watched in horror as the painting – which sold for £100million at auction in 2019 – was smothered.

It remains unclear if the artwork was damaged or if it is behind protective glass.

The duo then glued themselves to the floor as part of their protest.

Following the incident, Letzte Generation wrote in a tweet: “We are asking society the same question as 2 women with #Tomatensuppe at London’s National Gallery last week: What is worth more, art or life?

“More and more people refuse to accept the destruction and endangerment of human beings, to accept life in silence.”

The campaign group seemingly admitted they were inspired by a similar rampage at the National Gallery in London.

The Just Stop Oil activists – named as Anna Holland, 20, and 21-year-old Phoebe Plummer – chucked tomato soup over Van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers painting.
