Defacing Rothko painting more difficult than painting it

8 Oct

THE vandalism of a Mark Rothko painting is incredibly impressive when compared to the painting.

An anonymous attacker scrawled ?Vladimir Umanets, A Potential Piece of Yellowism? on the 1958 masterpiece that took Rothko about three minutes.

A spokesman for the Tate Modern, the new home of 2012?s The Rothko Defacement, said: ?It is a curious, yet striking statement.

?Rather than just a series of fuzzy rectangles.?
