A drunk Colorado woman punched an iconic $30 million painting and rubbed her bare buttocks on the artwork before collapsing in a heap and urinating on herself at a museum, the Denver Post reported.
Officials at the Clyfford Still Museum estimated that the vandal caused about $10,000 worth of damage to the painting, Still's abstract expressionist masterpiece, 1957-J-No. 2.
Ivar Zeile, owner of Plus Gallery in Denver, said that even if the painting wasn't seriously damaged, its value would plummet simply because it came in contact with Tisch's tush.
