newsflash: old art still makes people mad.

apparently enraged by beautifully painted nekkid women,  a madwoman began pounding her fists on gauguin’s two tahitian women a few weeks ago while it was on display at the national gallery in dc.  the woman was reported as screaming “this is evil” and something about the homosexual agenda.  she was tackled by a fellow museum-goer and detained, and the painting received minimal damage during the attack according to the washington post.

my condolences to the tahitian women, and my congratulations to mr. gauguin, who has proven post-humously that art is a living, powerful, and (sometimes) furious-rage-inducing thing.  awesome.

who could get mad at these lovely ladies?

"too bad i missed the showdown."
