    A Polish man who vandalised a Mark Rothko painting worth millions of euros has been jailed for two years in Britain. The 26-year-old scrawled his signature on the mural 'Black on Maroon' which is displayed at London's Tate Modern. The painting by the Russian-born artist was donated to the museum in the 1960s.
