Vandal stencils over Picasso work in Houston museum

A vandal added his own touch to a Picasso painting housed in a Houston museum, KRIV-TV reported Monday.

The suspect allegedly used spray paint to stencil the word "conquista" on an original Picasso at the Menil Collection, a YouTube video uploaded June 13 shows.

The video of the alleged crime is titled "Conquista la Bestia."

The piece, which was painted by Picasso in 1929, was rushed to restoration conservation, and the vandal's paint was successfully removed.

The Menil is working with police on the investigation.
