TFL Will Post Nude

Lucas Cranach the Elder - Venus (1532) detailA week ago I posted the news that Transport For London had rejected the Royal Academy of Arts' poster for its Cranach exhibition, which begins on 8 March, as being too rude (CLICK). Now I can report that TFL has backed down and agreed to stick up the RA poster on London Underground, despite Cranach's full-frontal Venus. That's why she's looking so smug. BBC London News has failed to bring us this tiff between two of London's major institutions! Without ArtDaily, I wouldn't have known about it. Tut, tut, Beeb. (To see 6 more Cranach's, type Cranach into my search box.)
