A Rothko painting has been defaced at Tate Modern today.
Mark Rothko's 1958 painting Black on Maroon
was defaced by a visitor at the Tate Museum in London this afternoon. A play-by-play from the initial discovery to the confirmation from the museum can be found at hyperallergic.com
, along with a look at the alleged vandal (whose name is an anagram for "I'm True Vandalism" and who says he increased the value
of the painting by tagging it).
