Vandal sprays Helst

Bartholomeus van der Helst - Anna du Pire as Granida (1660)
Here's one I missed last Sunday: a vandal in Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum sprayed a chemical over Bartholomeus van der Helst's Celebration of the Peace of Munster (1648). Congratulations to Rijksmuseum for putting this painting on the internet (click the title link). It's one of those massive commemorative wallpapers that's hopeless as a thumbnail image. So I've posted a van der Helst piccy that works as a small graphic, just to give the Guerrilla Girls something to moan about.
