The 20-year-old man, who was produced in court in London yesterday, according to a spokesperson from the gallery to the Tate Modern quickly arrested for the crime. The painting, 'Bust of a Woman' has subsequently been removed from the Tate Modern, so experts can assess the extent of the damage on the painting and begin a restoration of the famous painting.
