Huge Mural Was Painted 100 Years Ago, But Now The Restaurant Is Closing Because It’s “Offensive”

A floor-to-ceiling mural at a British restaurant has been labeled “offensive” by an ethics committee. The mural, which is about one hundred years old, was painted by Rex Whistler when he was twenty-three-years-old. The mural scene depicts enslaved children and caricatures of Chinese persons on “The Expedition in Pursuit of Rare Meats,” as the artwork is entitled. The mural was Whistler’s attempt to narrate the grand adventures people of old had to go on in order to source foods and goods from exotic parts of the world.

The artwork was restored back in 2013 despite showing enslaved Black children in ropes. However, the mural came under attack in July after the “White Pube” critics complained about the mural’s outdated content. The critique group has gained international recognition in recent years and was described by Vogue Magainze as “self-styled cowboy critics shaking up the arts establishment.”
