 (In 1998, three Matisse paintings were vandalized while on view at Rome’s Capitoline Museum. The damage, which included pencil markings and small puncture holes onto each canvas, occurred while a number of school groups were visiting the museum. The culprit was never identified, but the works were able to be restored.)
