What Would Picasso Do?


Not at all to become a flashpoint between the current seemingly worldwide "discussion" of urban art vs. vandalism, I did want to share a link to this article in yesterday's Houston Chronicle by Anita Hassan and Molly Glentzer:

It's about the controversy over whether the defacing of a Picasso painting (Woman in a Red Armchair, 1929) at the Menil Collection in Houston by stenciling an image on it should warrant an exhibition of the perpetrator's urban art at a cross-town gallery.
 
Very interesing viewpoints on both sides of this modern-world art "discussion" I think.  
 
What do you think?

    As the canvas prints are affordable, I ordered online a little size canvas print of my favorite,
