Like a scene out of an 80s comedy

If you were thinking of going to the Met anytime soon to see this painting…

Picasso's "The Actor"

…well, you can’t, because this weekend someone tripped into the painting and ripped it.  This is my absolute most squirmiest museum fear.  Apparently she was in an art class at the Met (she’s not anymore!), and apparently, it’s a six inch rip in the lower left hand corner that should be able to be repaired.  The painting is $190 million, so I hope so.  It’s hard to pony up that cash.
