Second art bashing episode earns Susan Burns a place in the crazy art attack toplist

The Washington Post reports a second art-bashing at the National Gallery of Art by serial art basher Susan Burns, the woman arrested for assaulting Gauguin’s Two Tahitian Women in April. This time, Burns slammed Matisse’s The Plumed Hat against the wall three times, damaging its antique frame. Various thoughtful contextualizations for these bizarre events are listed at the end of the Post piece, including a short history of crazy art attacks.
