Marat Guelman Art Gallery Attacked

MOSCOW, RUSSIA.- A group of men attacked the Marat Guelman art gallery and destroyed an exhibition of paintings by an ethnic Georgian artist and injured its owner.

Marat Guelman stated, "They stormed into the gallery, made the girls stand against the wall, began smashing everything down, then burst into my office and started beating me up and then they left. My face was smashed into meat. They chose the modern art and me as their enemy and they settled scores with me."

A criminal investigation was opened by prosecutors. Several nationalist web sites list Guelman as an “enemy of Russia” for his Jewish last name.
