A video posted on YouTube captures a man spray-painting Pablo Picasso's "Woman in a Red Armchair" at the Menil Collection.
Menil communications director Vance Muse, reached in Germany Monday, said the painting was rushed down the hall, with the paint barely dry, to the museum's renowned conservation lab, where chief conservator Brad Epley quickly began its repair.
The vandal, who fled the building and has not been identified, stenciled an image of a bullfighter killing a bull and the word "Conquista" on the painting.
The act was captured on video Wednesday afternoon and appeared on YouTube the same day.
