Christina's World?

Kennard Phillipps’ new version of ‘Christina’s World’ by Andrew Wyeth shows a girl in an oil covered landscape. The original shows the girl in an idyllic field that is now a National Historic Landmark in Maine. Greenpeace’s new film ‘A Song of Oil, Ice and Fire’ features classic American landscapes and shows how they would look if destroyed by Shell and the oil industry. Greenpeace supporters around the world are calling on Shell to stop drilling for oil in the Arctic.
