Classic crazy, goes after classic Paul Gaugain painting of two women. Evil does as evil sees. I see beautiful brush strokes, warm colors and beautiful women. That must make me beautiful. This nut job obviously hates the lesbian living in her. Poor thing, take some prozac and call me in the morning, doctors orders!
Woman Attacks $80 Mil. “Evil” Painting
Two Tahitian Women by Paul Gaugain
A painting by revered artist Paul Gauguin sustained no damage after a woman attempted to ruin it last week because it showed two topless women together.
The 1899 painting, Two Tahitian Women was on display at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., as part of a Gauguin exhibit. It is valued at $80 million according to the Washington Post.
Susan Burns, 53, of Alexandria, Va. was charged with attempted theft in the second degree for trying to grab the painting by its frame, and pulling it off the wall while screaming that the painting “is evil.” She then attempted to punch the painting, which was protected by a plexiglass shield. She also caused $200 in damage for ruining the painting’s frame and fixtures that secured the work to the wall.
