    I didn't say it couldn't be questioned. I said it's not pornography. Personally, I object to some of the images of fully-dressed tween girls I see prominently displayed at Target. I don't like the looks on their faces or their poses, which seem sexualized to me. But they aren't child pornography.

    I can see how some people may consider it to be suggestive, or even erotic, but it did not have that effect upon me, as I am not turned on in that sense by children. I saw the stance, revealing as it did the child's underclothes, as being both unnecessary and not in context with the subject of reflection.

    I see nothing wrong with artistically displaying nudity where adults are concerned and where the artwork is displaying that in context - the works of Michelangelo, Rubens, and Caravaggio come to mind, and the odd little cherub dick doesn't bother me - but I am not comfortable with suggestive displays of children.

    It certainly is not pornography, and I'm not sure of the intent, but it is not something I would hang in my abode. Call me a prude - but I am not comfortable with the sexualisation of children (even if merely suggestive).

    It's a tough one ... but what classical art museum doesn't have a dozen paintings with naked baby cherubs floating around?

    agreed.

    At this point a good deal of what hangs in museums would break the TOS rules here. To me this is just more of the professionally offended doing their offended thing.

    I don't know. I saw it, and thought it evoked the lonely thoughtfulness that many teens go through. I thought it was an excellent painting. Yeah, you saw her underwear. Oooo. So what. I didn't get the impression that "Hey! Look at this little girl's underwear!" was the point of the work.

    It is my opinion that the subject was a child in the sense of an individual below the age of 16. The elongated limbs and lack of pronounced breasts indicate an early adolescent, but I must admit the face seems older. And whilst I do not consider that pornographic in any meaningful sense of the word, I find it a tasteless depiction of what is probably a young teenage girl - and simply do not see the point of it in the context of a person reflecting.
