‘Ridiculous’ Misandric National Trust Stunt Puts Plastic Bags And White Sheets Over Artworks Depicting Men - To ‘Promote Women’
By Robin Perrie: A National Trust exhibition was rapped after paintings and statues depicting men were covered up to promote women.
The artworks were draped in white sheets and plastic bags to mark the centenary of some women getting the vote.
The aim was to highlight their role but visitors to Cragside in Rothbury, Northumberland, were not happy. One man, from Cramlington, Northumberland, said: “It’s just ridiculous. They were covered up in room after room. Statues had white bags over them. “People were complaining and as baffled as I was.”
"I’m not happy with the National Trust using art to push a message' that 'the only way to put women forward is to put men backwards" A visitor Commented.
