The Truth Comes out: Burns Thinks Gauguin Painting is ‘homosexual’
It turns out that the woman who attacked the Gauguin painting is puritanically anti-gay besides being insane.
When asked why she did it, Burns reportedly told police that she was offended by the nudity depicted in the painting, among other issues.
“I feel that Gauguin is evil,” she told police, according to charging documents. “He has nudity and is bad for the children. He has two women in the painting and it’s very homosexual. I was trying to remove it.”
Gauguin painted “Two Tahitian Women” in 1899, during his quest to find an earthly paradise in Tahiti.
