Woman attacks ‘Evil’ Gauguin painting at National Gallery

An 1899 painting by Paul Gauguin was expected to be inspected on Monday after a woman tried to pull it from the wall of Washington’s National Gallery of Art and banged on its clear, plastic covering, screaming, “This is evil.” “She was really pounding it with her fists,” witness Pamela Degotardi told The Washington Post. “It was like this weird surreal scene that one doesn’t expect at the National Gallery.” She said the woman, who was tackled by another museum-goer, yelled “this is evil” while trying to pull Gauguin’s “Two Tahitian Women” from the wall on Friday afternoon. The painting shows two women, one with both breasts showing, the other with one bare breast.
