The Vandals are Coming!!

Two 17th-century paintings by Nicholas Poussin were reportedly vandalized yesterday in the National Gallery in London.  A 57-year-old man, presumably French, sprayed Poussin’s 1634 “The Adoration of the Golden Calf” with a canister of red paint and according to a by-stander, he “seemed proud of what he had done” and made no attempt to escape the scene.
