As I was sitting at the Buying Committee of the Tate Modern, my eyes were arrested in awe and also complete ignorance by a piece from an artist I did not know about, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian.

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.
