As far as the actual story goes, doesn't sound like TOO serious of damage, and art restorers can do amazing work these days.
You know, at the peak of his career, Pablo Picasso got beaten and robbed.
He went to the local French police to report the crime. When they heard he was an artist, they asked him to do a sketch of his assailant, and he agreed.
Based on his sketch, they arrested a nun, the Minister of Defence, a washing machine, and the Eiffel Tower.
Karma for that.
Picasso kidding aside, here's an early Picasso portrait.
That's the major difference between Picasso and so many other "modern" art people of the past 50 years. He had actual talent.
