Drunk Woman Damages $30 Million Painting By Rubbing Bare Buttocks On It
"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."
The art critic, Carmen Tisch, 36, of Denver will never paint a masterpiece, write the Great American Novel, or discover a cure for cancer. You won`t find an entry for this demented woman in Wikipedia; if she lives to be 96 she will never accomplish anything of significance in her life.
However, Tisch does have a long rap sheet including an arrest for armed robbery last year and another for drunk driving in 2008. By breaking down the different elements from which the human body is made each body is worth $1.78. That`s all that Tisch is worth, not a penny more.
It`s an outrage that this iconic painting wasn`t protected by bullet-proof glass, and it`s a shame that there wasn`t a guard armed with a taser to stop her in her tracks before she could damage the painting.
This oxygen thief was charged with criminal mischief and is being held in Denver County jail in lieu of $20,000 bond. Unfortunately, she will soon be released to wreak more havoc on humankind.
Society pays a high pride for coddling criminals the likes of Carmen Tisch.
