A police investigation is underway to determine the cause of the damage. It was caused by a sharp item and is only visible if you look closely at the painting.
National Police are investigating vandalism in Zamora Provincial Council offices. The paintings damaged were two paintings of the 19th Century on loan from Prado and one pictorial from the early 20th Century. EFE has been informed by sources at the Zamora Provincial Institution that Ricardo Seguindo is a Madrid artist who was linked with Zamora.
After a weekend security guard discovered the damage with a sharp tool, the Zamora Provincial Council Government Team reported it to the police. The Provincial Palace of Zamora is located at the Plaza de Viriato, the former Hospital de la Encarnacion in Zamora’s capital.
Three oil paintings are damaged: Portrait of Her Majesty’s Queen Elizabeth II by an anonymous artist from 1855, Landscape of Normandy by Jaime Morera and Galicia from 1884, and Dressing The Bride by Ricardo Segundo, from 1931.
When the paintings were transferred to Madrid by the National Prado museum, the two first works had informed the Madrid Art Gallery of what occurred so it could decide on how to proceed with the restoration.
In order to prevent such “vandalism” against the heritage, the Zamora Provincial Council announced it would reinforce its security system by adding more cameras and personnel. The surveillance personnel will be on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.
Victor Lopez, the deputy of Culture and the first vice-president of the Zamora Provincial Council has told EFE, that the National Police were notified on Monday, and so scientific police officers visited the site this past Tuesday to assess the damages and make a report. The property crime unit will be notified of all of them.
It is awaiting a formal complaint from the provincial institution to be made to the National Police. The incident has been reported to them already.
Victor Lopez stated that all damages covered by insurance for the Zamora Provincial Corporation’s collection of artwork in their premises.
