The woman who attacked a painting earlier this year because of its gay connotations was arrested again this month for attempting to destroy another painting at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Susan Burns, 53, of Alexandria, Va., was arrested after she grabbed Henri Matisse’s 1919 painting The Plumed Hatand slammed it repeatedly against a wall.

MoMA’s lobby is a site of perpetual flux and frenzy, a public passageway for people to meet, greet, rest, or chat before embarking on their next experience, either inside or outside the Museum’s walls.
