Picasso too sexy for this airport?

On loan from the collections of the Tate over in London, Picasso’s Nude Woman in a Red Armchair is now on the wall at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. An airport advertisement  trying to get people excited for the new exhibit and to sell some tickets, but apparently the “provocative” display of modern art is not appropriate for an airport—at least according to some passengers.

Initially Edinburgh airport succumbed to the pressure from prude passengers, as they covered up the risqué reproduction. However, eventually they decided that people should be able to handle something like this, and they decided to let the advertisement and art do its thing.

Ironically the controversy has probably brought some attention to the exhibit and the museum, so  they’ll get their wish to sell even more tickets.The Picasso and Modern British Art exhibition runs through November 4 and tickets will cost £10.
