Picasso painting suffers a tear at the Met

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, home of some of the most amazing collection of artifacts from ancient history to modern times was caught off guard as one of its most treasured Picasso’s received a lethal blow by a clumsy student who stumbled onto the masterpiece and created a six inch gash on the hundred year old canvas.

This isn’t the first time that this happens to a Picasso. Casino Mogul Steve Wynn pocked a whole in Picasso’s Dream oil painting. As the owner of such a creation and due to an hereditary deteriorating eye disease at least he has a good excuse.

So the next time a guard at the museum asks you to step away from the masterpiece please oblige…
