Picasso masterpiece ruined by “collector”

CNN reports that a casino magnate bought a $139 million Picasso painting, one of his truly iconic works, and poked a hole in it. Exactly how dumb do you have to be to spend that kinda money and flail around anywhere near the work? I don’t understand how this happens… it’s a sad day for fine art. “Smack in the middle … was a black hole the size of a silver dollar. ‘Oh s**t,’ he said. ‘Look what I’ve done.” Look what you’ve done indeed!
