Russian citizen abused an expensive painting by Mark Rothko Automatic translate
In the London Tate Modern gallery, the famous work of Mark Rothko, entitled "Black on Brown," was spoiled by Vladimir Umanets, an artist from Russia, who had also previously tried to spoil Pollack’s paintings. He himself said that he did this solely from good intentions. The canvas he painted in black paint.
The painting by Mark Rothko was created in 1958. She is part of the famous series of the famous artist, which he wrote for the restaurant "Seagram’s", and currently its cost is about $ 86 million. Immediately after this, the gallery had to be closed for a while.
Eyewitnesses say that before committing an act of vandalism, the Russian sat for a long time in front of the picture, and then calmly walked over and wrote something with a black marker. Nobody succeeded in stopping or stopping him. In the picture of Mark Rothko appeared the inscription "Vladimir Umanets, a potential work of yellowism." Vladimir Umanets noted that he did not want to spoil the work. His goal was to show everyone the difference between yellowness (anti-art) and art.
Subsequently, the vandal called the Guardian editorial office on his own and commented on his act: “I did not damage the picture. I didn’t steal anything. Similar things have happened many times. I do not believe that I have done something illegal. And if the police are going to arrest me, then I don’t see any problems with that. ”
