Impressionist Hole

Museum Visitor Rips 6-Inch Hole In Picasso

Artwork Will Undergo Repairs For 6-Inch Tear After Accident

A notable painting by Picasso will undergo repairs after a visitor to the Metropolitan Museum of Art accidentally lost her balance and struck it.

It's a Picasso...does it really make any difference that it's ripped?  This is the guy who painted people with ears on their foreheads and whatnot.  If he were still around today, he'd probably be punching holes in the canvas himself.
The lady lost her balance and fell into the painting.  Was she peering down at the painting from atop a step ladder?  Was she doing gymnastics down the exhibit hall?  What's going on at the MET?!!  I wonder if they're allowing visitors to form human pyramids and ride pogo sticks...

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
