Royal Rothko Ruination0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:43 pm

A valuable Mark Rothko painting in the Tate Modern has been severely defaced…

One of the Russian’s Seagram murals, which had been donated to the London gallery before his death in 1970, took its proud position on one of the walls, where much of the public would notice it on visits to the world-renowned art house. Other works from the same artist have sold for millions of dollars, hitting a new record for both him and contemporary art in general in May 2012 where ‘Orange, red, yellow’ sold for $86.9m.

The entire gallery was closed briefly after the vandal simply watched the painting for some time, walked up to it and committed his crime, before making a hasty escape. Police officials are investigating the occurrence as we speak, as the piece is of such high value.

One Twitter user under the name of Tim Wright posted this picture which contains the scrawl that says ‘VladimirUmanets, a Potential Piece of Yellowism‘. www.thisisyellowism.com is co-controlled by the name given but as of yet the reasons for causing this damage (which is the worst to have ever hit the Tate Modern) are unknown.

But what do you think? Are you appalled at the man who could execute such an operation? Or would you be patting him on the back for achieving a feat so bold? Tell us your thoughts by pressing ‘Read More & Comment’!
