Damaged Picasso Returns to Met

Look closely and see if you can tell the difference: The Picasso painting that was marred by a six-inch gash after a woman fell into it in January has been returned to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. After three months of work, conservators say The Actor has been restored to as near its original state as possible. Picasso made the painting when he was 23; it is classified as part of his Rose Period.
