Accident prone Picasso

You must have friends who sit around and practically do nothing all day long but somehow manage to break some body parts every few years. Now it turns out that some artists' pieces are more accident prone than the other.

A woman attending art class lost her balance, fell into "The Actor" and tore it. This Picasso's painting was displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the incident happened last Friday according to Associated Press.

A similar fate befell another Picasso's painting "Le Rêve" in late 2006 just before it's owner Steve Wynn was about to sell the painting to hedge fund manager Steve Cohen for USD139m.
