Bored Gallery Guard Vandalized A Russian Painting

Yikes! Anna Leporskaya’s Three Figures, a valuable avant-garde painting, was vandalized by a ‘bored’ security guard when he drew on the faceless figures in the artwork. The artwork was painted between 1932 and 1934, and was insured for 75m roubles (~$1.3m). It was displayed in an exhibition at the Boris Yeltsin Presidential Center in Ekaterinburg, where the guard was working on his first day. The guard was not identified but he was fired. “His motives are still unknown but the administration believes it was some kind of a lapse in sanity,” Anna Reshetkina, the exhibition’s curator said. Restoration work was estimated to cost around 250,000 roubles (~$4,600).
