The free artwork of Gilbert and George on internet

Tuesday 8 May 2007

An original work by artists and national treasures Gilbert and George would normally set you back many thousands of pounds. But from 11.30 pm tonight a piece is being made available to anyone who wants it - for free. The work, called Planed, can be downloaded from the Guardian and BBC websites from 11.30 pm, for 48 hours only. It will be the first time that artists of this stature have made work available in this way. The creation of the downloadable work was the idea of Alan Yentob, who tonight presents an edition of the BBC arts programme Imagine about the artists. "This sort of thing has never been done before," said Yentob, "But when I saw how Gilbert and George made their pictures it was clear that this would be a perfect match."
