Photographer Richard Prince’s photo “Spiritual America” was removed from the upcoming Tate Modern exhibition “Pop Life” (opening tomorrow) after a warning from Scotland Yard that the nude image of actress Brooke Shields aged 10 and heavily made up could break obscenity laws.
The officers spoke to the Tate after seeing promotional material in the newspaper and not via complaints that were issued to the office.
Read more about the history of the photo and it’s background at the Guardian article.
