- The Van Gogh Sunflowers painting is shown on Public Display.
- Two ladies have denied doing criminal harm to the casing of one of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers artistic creations.
The work of art had soup tossed at it in the Public Display on Friday.
Anna Holland, 20, from Newcastle, and Phoebe Plummer, 21, from Lambeth, south-west London, argued that it was not blameworthy when they showed up at Westminster Judges’ Court.
During a day of dissent in Westminster, a third lady is charged over paint splashed on the New Scotland Yard sign.
Lora Johnson, 38, from Southwold, Suffolk, argued not liable to charges of criminal harm of the well-known turning sign at a similar court.
Ms. Holland and Ms. Plummer talked exclusively to affirm their names, dates of birth, and addresses and to enter their supplications to charges of criminal harm to the worth of under £5,000.
Region judge Tan Ikram delivered the pair on abandonment because they don’t enter exhibitions or galleries and don’t have paint or sticky substances in a public spot.
Examiner Ola Oyedepo said the pair tossed the “orange substance,” a “defensive case,” over the actual canvas. However, harm was caused to the edge to be aware there.
Ms. Oyedepo said the worth of the harm was “essentially underneath the £5,000 cost limit”.
Katie McFadden, protecting, said: “The indictment needs to demonstrate that harm has been caused.”
She said the “degree of the harm would be pertinent to the proportionality evaluation” in weighing up their right to articulation.
Their preliminary was set for 13 December at the City of London Justices’ Court.
