Vandalised paintings, of course, leads us down only one path: tighter security measures at galleries, lenders being more reluctant to send works to Britain, and art becoming less accessible for you, me and generations to come.

As much as I loved the artworks, I don't find myself angry at the act of vandalism per se. The thing which bothers me is the knock on effects of vandalism - the fact that there will be people who are furious and that fury could end up limiting the physical enjoyment of Rothko's work.
