Even for people who are not Poussin fans, this episode shows how destructive one moron can be.

I agree that the event will inevitably reignite debates about security in museums. As it should do! But bag searches won't stop a determined crusader.

The only way to protect precious art treasures is to place a thick, clear protective cover in front of the work. It would cost a fortune, but x-ray machines at gallery doors would cost even more. And it would be less invasive for the 99.99% of gallery visitors who are decent human beings.

Thanks Hels,

Yes, I think a protective surface, non-reflective glass, whatever might be the solution. We'll wait and see. I know bag searches won't really stop anybody hell bent on destruction.

Yes, all art lovers wether Poussin fans or not, wil be deeply saddened by this incident. It's just appalling.

What awful news! This reminds me a little of what Alexander Brener did to a painting by Malevich:

If you hear more on the subject, please keep us posted!

Shocking news! I'm actually surprised to hear that such a revered work wasn't underneath glass or a protective surface to begin with - it is surely one of Poussin's most famous works.

I don't think the nudity was spark - it is not an entirely lascivious work. It's hard to know the mind of people who can bring themselves to do this. Some looking at the work without understanding its meaning could see it as a veneration of the worship of false idols. We may never know the answer.

Speaking of appalling behaviour towards art - how about that San Francisco Picasso thief - Authorities just raided his New Jersey apartment to discover enough works in there to fill a small gallery - all stolen from galleries and hotels over the last month!

13、人世间应该成全的有很多,我们要学会成全。也许会有人说,我成全别人,谁又来成全我?其实当你用一颗包容的心去成全别人的同时,你自己的心灵也得到了释放,心灵得到了净化和升华。不管别人是否成全你,你自己已经成全了自己,成全了自己有一个乐观、豁达的心境。

15、只是个普通的劳动者,无论身居何职何地,都不会忘记祖国和人民的使命。岁月会使人老去,知识却永远年轻。白霜染发,壮志犹在,呕心沥血,春蚕到死。

1、高度的自尊心不是骄傲、自大或缺乏自我批评精神的同义词。自尊心强的人不是认为自己比别人优越,而只是对自己有信心,相信自己能够克服自己的缺点。 2、没有自我尊重,就没有道德的纯洁性和丰富的个性精神。对自身的尊重、荣誉感、自豪感、自尊心——这是以块磨练细腻的感情的砺石。 3、每一个梦想都值得尊重,无论它有多遥远,无论它能否实现。因为只要有梦,希望就不会熄灭。 4、每一个正直的人都应该维护自己的尊严。 5、人受到震动有种种不同:有的是在脊椎骨上;有的是在神经上;有的是在道德感受上;而最强烈的、最持久的则是在个人尊严上。 6、人要想对自己的尊严有所觉悟,就必需谦虚。的确,人性是尊严的,但这样说还是不甚明确的,也是不完整的。说人是尊严的,这只限于没有私心的、利他的、富于怜悯的、有感情的、肯为其他生物和宇宙献身的这种情况。
