Gauguin's Tahiti too hot for TV!

I'm not sure what's more dismaying - that someone could be crazy enough to attack Gauguin's Two Tahitian Women (the artwork in the end sustained no damage), or that no local television station would show the painting without masking its "naughty bits" (above). Sigh. Only in America, huh. Or maybe Saudi Arabia.  Below is the painting in all its glory.  Don't get too excited, guys.

  1. It's a good thing too. My parents allowed me to museums to see Paul Gauguin paintings when I was growing up and look what happened to me.
