17th November
written by Caryn

I read this story today about a woman fined for actually planting a kiss on a painting after being so overcome with passion for art. That’s weird, for sure, but the part that really caught my eye was this:

The plain white canvas, part of triptych by artist Cy Twombly, was on show at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

She must also pay a symbolic one euro (71p) to the US artist.

The gallery owner will also receive 500 euros (£357).

Restorers have been unable to remove the lipstick and have unsuccessfully used 30 products to get rid of the stain.
