Forgotten artist remembered with a kiss

For those of you who resent Modern art, or cherish Dada art you’ll be rooting for Rindy Sam in her upcoming trial. Accused of savagery by the prosecutor, this woman smeared lipstick on the all white canvas, while overcome with passion for the painting. A Cambodian born artist, Sam was quoted saying, “This red stain is testimony to this moment, to the power of art.”
The artist Cy Twombly has been overshadowed in Art History by Abstract Expressionists and later Pop Artist. He was accused of being too literary when it was uncool, and embraced a classical past, at least in his titles such as Leda and the Swan:

For those of you who can’t tell, a professional artist did this, this is not a sample from my first grade portfolio. The owner of the painting wants the women to pay more than 2 million in damages for her lipstick stain. And as far as her savagery is concerned Duchamp would be proud.
