Nude pics pose problem for library

A SELECTION of nude paintings has been banned from an exhibition at Redditch, England, Library because bosses decided they were too graphic.

Modern Classical Nude by Dermot Hannon went on display in the library's gallery on Saturday (April 24), but three of the pictures - depicting a naked woman - were deemed unsuitable for children.

"The whole point of the collection was to define the difference between erotic and beautiful, and I tried to make them as tasteful as possible.

"I know the staff are covering their own backs, but come on, it's 2004. I think they're being a bit prudish."

Does seem as if there was the potential for complaints, as they said they gallery could be seen from the children's library. So he had to move some of the paintings so they weren't so visible from outside, but completely remove others.
