Art student falls into Picasso painting.




I was just taking a peak at the news and came across this article and well I just had to post about it.

So a woman who was taking an art class at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art accidentally fell into a Picasso painting "The Actor" worth $130 million and ripped it. (ahhhh the pain)

Gosh can you imagine if that happened to you, I would probably die on the spot.

The work from the Rose period was painted in the winter of 1904-1905. Thankfully the damage did not affect the "focal point of the composition" and should be repaired for an exhibition later this year, the museum said.
