Suffering from a lil pre-Christmas stress?  Need to let off some steam?  Why not punch a Monet?  While LOL doesn’t condone violence against artworks, this interactive online game by Dries Depoorter, Eiji Muroichi, and Tom Galle (above) is rather amusing – and topical of course, following the five year jail sentence recently issued to Andrew Shannon after he did just that to Monet’s Argenteuil Basin with a Single Sailboat (1874) at the National Gallery of Ireland in 2012.  If you fancy creating your own virtual damage you can do so here.
