STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
It's apparently a crime to make your own contribution to a work of art. A French museum was displaying a Cy Twombly painting. It might be the ultimate work of modern art. It's nine by six feet, untitled and white - a big white canvas, valued at $2 million. A woman named Sam Rindy kissed it. She left a lipstick stain and got arrested. But she says I found the painting even more beautiful. The artist left this white for me.
It's MORNING EDITION.
