Yesterday US artist Charles Ray's 8ft tall Boy With Frog
(2009) was removed from outside the Punta della Dogana
on the Grand Canal in Venice, where it has stood for the last four years. A copy of a 19th-century lamp-post will take its place. Art lovers are furious with the council. Dogs will cock a leg. Froggy billionaire Francois Pinault commissioned the statue to stand outside the Punta della Dogana
, a former custom house which now houses his collection of contemporary art (CLICK
