Police: Woman Attacks Art at DC Museum Again
WASHINGTON D.C. (AP).- A woman who attacked a painting at Washington's National Gallery of Art earlier this year has struck again, police say, this time lashing out against a Henri Matisse painting at the museum.

Susan Burns of Alexandria, Va., was arrested Aug. 5 after police say she walked over to Matisse's 1919 painting "The Plumed Hat," and slammed the painting repeatedly against a wall, damaging its frame but not the $2.5 million painting.

The 53-year-old Burns was arrested in April for attacking an $80 million Paul Gauguin painting called "Two Tahitian Women." As a condition of her release she promised she would stay away from all museums and art galleries in Washington.

In the latest incident she was charged with unlawful entry and brought to the city's mental health facility.
