The restoration by Daniel Goldreyer initially cost some $400.000, but was heavily attacked by critics who claimed that subtle nuances in the three monochrome sections had been lost and that Goldreyer had used house paints and a roller. According to critics, the painting had been destroyed twice: first during the attack, and again during the restoration. Although the painting is still in the Stedelijk Museum's collection, it is no longer on display. Van Bladeren was diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic and sentenced to eight months in prison.
