When a picture paints few words
Luminaries from the world of nice pictures have decided that oil giant BP needs a little more money while people in Scotland need a little less art.
The Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh has said it will no longer show the BP Portrait Award exhibition.
"We recognise the need to do all we can to address the climate emergency," National Galleries Scotland said.
The prize is run by London's National Portrait Gallery and has been sponsored by the oil giant for 30 years.
Maybe the whole thing is a piece of performance art.
