Rothko Painting Vandalised in Tate Modern

1stNW Quadrant: The Approval Matrix

From Telegraph

A squatter accused of scrawling graffiti on a £50 million Mark Rothko painting donated to the Tate gallery by the artist himself appeared in court today.

Wlodzimierz Umaniec, 26, was accused of writing his name and "12A - A potential piece of Yellowism" on Rothko's Black on Maroon at the Tate Modern gallery on London's South Bank on Sunday afternoon.

His solicitor indicated that he would plead not guilty, and hinted that his client would 'like his day in court.'
