Among the highlights of the Denver collection is a work with the very Still-like moniker "1957-J-No. 2," whose approximate measurements are nine-and-a-half feet by thirteen feet in size. Here's a look at it:Tisch had quite a reaction to this piece, according to the statement of probable cause on view below. Around 3:40 p.m. on December 29, the document says Tisch scratched the canvas, then struck it repeatedly before leaning against it with her pants down. She then slid to the floor and urinated.
No, none of her yellow-colored liquid actually wound up on the painting. But the cost for restoring the canvas to its former glory was estimated at $10,000. As for why Tisch acted as she did, authorities originally suspected that she was drunk -- and she has indeed been ordered to undergo alcohol treatment as part of her punishment for what's been termed criminal mischief. However, her main sentence is for what's described by the Denver District Attorney's Office as two years of "mental health probation."
In addition, the DA's office notes that a restitution hearing may still be scheduled -- meaning Tisch could be on the hook for the cost of restoring "1957-J-No. 2" to its original glory -- to go along with its newfound notoriety.
Look below to see a larger version of Tisch's mug shot, followed by the aforementioned probable cause statement.
