A Londoner destroyed Picasso's artwork
As he says, he is not guilty.
After an important painting by Pablo Picasso was damaged in one of London's more popular and revered museums, the alleged culprit will be prosecuted. Last weekend, Pablo Picasso's 1944 painting, "The Bust of a Woman," was reportedly torn at the Tate Modern Museum. The person suspected of this vandalism is Shakil Ryan Masay, a 20-year-old man from London, who was indicted on December 28th. According to the Guardian, Masay said he will deny the allegations.
This work of art was created during the Nazi occupation of Paris and is currently worth around £ 20 million. In the painting, we can see photographer Dora Mar, the mistress and muse of the famous artist, posing in bright green clothes with a hat on her head. The painting, which was on a long-term loan to the museum, was attacked on Saturday and has now been taken off the wall.
According to the Tate Modern Museum, "the best conservation experts are working on this painting," while keeping the museum open. The 20-year-old man is in custody and has not been granted bail, so he will remain there until the hearing takes place on January 30.
By the way, this is not the only controversy surrounding the Tate Modern Museum over the past year. Specifically, a boy was thrown from a tenth-floor vantage point in the previous year, and the crime was committed by a teenager who pleaded guilty.
