A rare Picasso painting at New York' City's Metropolitan Museum of Art was damaged with a 6-inch tear when a clumsy art lover lost her balance and stumbled into the $80 million work of art.
The unidentified woman was attending an adult education class last week when she lost her balance and fell against The Actor, damaging the lower right corner, the Met said in statement.
The museum said the tear did not occur "in a focal point of the composition" and could be repaired in time for an April display of 250 works of art by the painter at the Met.
The painting, which measures 6 feet by 4 feet, was completed by Picasso in 1905.
