A man accused of vandalizing a 1929 Pablo Picasso painting _ an act that was caught on cellphone video _ must remain jailed on $500,000 bonds because he is a flight risk, a Houston judge ruled Wednesday.
Within minutes of a vandal spray painting a Pablo Picasso painting, Houston museum officials had rushed the valuable artwork into their onsite conservation lab as if it was an injured patient in need of emergency surgery.
The Menil, which opened in 1987 and is free to the public, did not make sweeping changes to its security or how it displays paintings as a result of the vandalism, Muse said.
"To the naked eye, you and I would not know it had been touched," he said. "It is in very fine shape. We are very, very relieved."
