You can't find it on facebook because it goes against their regulations. Wtf is wrong with you since when is facebook the authority of what is art or not?


Facebook is the authority of what is right or wrong according to what is posted on their site and obviously any depictions specifically of sexual organs without any other context in the picture is considered pornography. That's why you don't see these types of artistic expressions in galleries or in the general public.

here painted and plastic art is full of penis, so is architecture, music... just one quick google search and you could have saved yourself from this embarassingly wrong statement.


Show me a full on painting of a penis without any context and I will admit I am wrong.

I think this is a nice painting. Not distasteful at all.

Politically Correct is double speak for censorship. Correct thinking is as quickly rewarded.

Now, think about your next words and answer me carefully:

Is it safe ?

Water nymphs were depicted as nude a lot in history. Attacking Pre-Raphaelite art/ Waterhouse art seems like posturing. It's art, not porn. Pre SJW fake feminists, feminism was happy that Pre-Raphaelite art shared n the modern day that beauty went beyond the current mainstream ideal of what it was.

Should "Nymph Abducted by a Faun" see here, be banned if shown anywhere as well. I mean it's a fawn/human abducting a nymph, two mythical creatures.

How about Peter Paul Ruben's baroque Rubenesque women nudity? Wouldn't that ban counteract the feminist support for larger beauty?

All those crouching cherubs bring a bit of the sinister unknown into play, and go un noticed.... Everyone looks at the nudity naturally. Only a small part of a story untold.

I disagree. We are still supposed to be adults. Adults don't cry and moan, if they see something they don't like, they avoid it. You don't like a statue? Look the other way. It's free and anyone can do it. Don't like a painting? Don't look at it. It's free and everyone can do it. Just because some don't wanna see history doesn't mean others feel the same.

I'm not trying to argue with you here, I just think that if an adult is a mature adult then they should have the strength to look past the things they don't like.


But some adults on this thread are crying and moaning about the painting being taken down, so equality in everything.


I see what you're saying, but WHY is it being taken down in the first place? Because someone cried instead of avoiding it. When something has been on display for decades or centuries, it stands to reason that it should remain because it has remained for so long with no issues or has been avoided by adults. I understand where you're coming from, but do you see my point?

Waterhouse is one of my favorite artists! I don't see it as distasteful either!

Stay tuned for the upcoming film, folks.




New commission Sonia Boyce is fascinated by ‘what people do when they come together’. She is currently working with the gallery team and invited collaborators, including Lasana Shabazz and drag artists from Family Gorgeous, to make a new work: a night-time group takeover of the gallery exploring ‘gender trouble’ among the gallery’s 19th century painting displays and wider culture. This new commission will be made into a film installation and shown for the first time in the exhibition.

It will be restored to it's original position shortly, this is all about starting a conversation about 19th century depictions of women and an introduction to a new artist's commission there.

On Friday, the Manchester Art Gallery announced it would be temporarily removing a painting from the 1890s in order to “prompt conversation about how we display and interpret artwork” during a time when several sexual harassment scandals are in the headlines.


Its obvious most of the replies in this thread lack critical thinking, so before and after posters get retarded (too late!) I encourage you to actually read the article.
