    National Gallery Visitor Attacks Gauguin Painting
    04.04.11

    A painting in the Paul Gauguin exhibit at the National Gallery was attacked last Friday by a visitor in a rare and unusual incident that provoked considerable commotion. Screaming “This is evil,” a woman tried to pull Gauguin’s Two Tahitian Women, 1889, from a wall and banged on the picture’s clear plastic covering, reports Timothy R. Smith and Martin Weil for the Washington Post.
