Paul Gauguin's Two Tahitian Women (1899)
"This is evil!" shouted the female perp in this incident — National Gallery visitor attacks Gauguin painting, officials say. "She was really pounding it with her fists," an eye-witness said. "It was like this weird surreal scene that one doesn't expect at the National Gallery."
Paul Gauguin's The Yellow Christ (1889) and Spirit of the Dead Watching (Manao tupapau) (1892) are old friends of mine, housed as they are in my city's art gallery. About the painting above, a post at Catholic Culture and Society comes to mind — Women in Art / as window into the soul of a culture.
