Morning Vandalism News

French police have arrested five people in connection with the Monet incident at the Musee d'Orsay over the weekend. Reuters reports that they're all between 18 and 19 years old.

Meanwhile, The New York Times reports this morning that French prosecutors have requested a $6,300 fine and a civics course for "a woman who planted a lipstick-red kiss on an all-white painting by the American artist Cy Twombly." The woman says, "It was an act of love; when I kissed it, I wasn’t thinking. I thought the artist would understand." According to the Times, "a verdict is expected in a few weeks." Earlier post here.
