Susan Burns Charged Over Two Tahitian Women Painting Attack
During his life legendary artist Paul Gauguin went through some turbulent times but nowadays it seems like he’s still the center of attention as a woman was accused of trying to rip one of his paintings from a wall at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC reportedly said she did it because felt he was “evil” and the art had nudity and was bad for children.
The woman, a convicted felon named Susan Burns, 53 went on to ramble how Gauguin’s $80 million painting of two semi nude Tahitian women was “homosexual” also stated that she was with the CIA and had a radio in her head.
We can see where this is going.
Sure museums can’t keep crazy people out all the time but couldn’t they have allowed for more protection for a painting worth $80 million? It’s like if someone had a walk-in display of the Crown Jewels of Europe.
Luckily though the panting was somewhat protected by an acrylic shield on the front but Burns did manage to remove it from the wall and manhandle it anyway.
