17. The museum had really poor security.
It's admirable of them to think no one is going to do this kind of shit because we're all reasonable people, but we're not, as this incident shows. I hope now they have invested in some intelligent video monitoring tied to the alarm system, at the very least...

Also, it's a series of paintings, not just one. I think there are actually three or four versions. So even if this one was utterly destroyed, we'd still have the others. Looking at the photos, I think the pictures can be stabilized and the damage addressed to some degree, as well as the color restored by conservators, if that is the route the museum to take. They are far, far from a total loss.
