Picasso Painting Torn in Museum

A Picasso painting at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is being repaired after being torn by visitor on Jan. 22.

The museum said that the painting, "The Actor", received a 6-inch tear after a woman tripped and fell onto it.

The Associated Press said that the tear was made in the lower right-hand corner of the painting and does not effect the focal point of the piece.

Repair work, according to CNN, should be unobtrusive.
