The selfie-takers knocked down a temporary wall, shattering the glass on both frames and causing damage to the Dalí work. The scene was captured on security cameras. This isn’t the first (or even the second) time a selfie-taking visitor has caused damage to a work of art. We’re mostly surprised anyone would want to take a selfie with a Goya work—that stuff is not exactly photogenic!
