Fame at what price?

A young Mexican artist living in Houston, walked into a Houston gallery and stenciled an image onto the 1929 Picasso painting "Woman in a Red Armchair". An attempt at self promotion? The proverbial 15 minuets of fame? A protest of some sort? High art vs. Low art? So many questions, like has this guy been arrested? Whatever the reasons, this is a truly dick move. The painting has been restored, and is reported to be in pre-attack condition.
