This is really too bad.

Where do we draw the line? When is art breaking the law? I found it interesting that the Tate Modern is closing the entire exhibit and not just removing the photo. To me, it shows the museum's dedication to the exhibition — every photograph is there for a reason, and they all work together to tell a story of the artist, Richard Prince.

And it appears that Brooke Shield's tweeny photo should be the least of Scotland Yard's worries. The exhibition, Pop Life, contains so much explicit material (and much of it hardcore pornography), that many of the exhibits provide warnings to audiences.

Perhaps Scotland Yard also needs to hop on over to the National Gallery and demand Bronzino's "naked painting" to be taken down.

Or, maybe they could go to all of the card shops and throw away the Anne Geddes babies. Actually, that might not be such a bad idea.
