The man who punched a hole in a Monet in the National Gallery of Ireland has been jailed for six years. He also had paint stripper on him at the time, but didn't get a chance to use it. When police raided his house, they found a large cache of stolen paintings. More here.

One has to say that this is a good deterrent sentence. It beats the two years given to the nut who defaced the Tate's Rothko.
