Houston Man Charged With Vandalizing 1929 Picasso at Museum

 

Houston police have identified the man who is responsible for vandalizing a Picasso painting at a Houston, Texas museum.

A cell phone video shows Uriel Landeros, 22 spray painting a bull along with the word "conquista" onto the 1929 painting "Woman in a Red Armchair". Landeros was charged Friday with felony graffiti and criminal mischief.

"The painting went directly to the on-site conservation lab down the hall. The damage is being undone and the prognosis is excellent," the spokeswoman for the museum said.

He should pay for the restoration and spend time in jail and/or cleaning up graffiti around the city.!

  Who cares?  
 
Considering Picasso is over-rated and non deserving of being in a museum of fine art. I agree with the graffiti. To each their own, but it makes me happy he had the balls to do it.

To each their own means not destroying things other people prefer. You sound like a juvenile vandal. Who cares about Picasso, indeed.
