newport nude

Art that was too explicit to show in 1947 now presents a new problem
The oil painting, Newport Nude, done by a prominent artist but stuffed away for 60 yrs because the model was topless, has finally been dusted off for a show at a Welsh gallery—except now it's being badmouthed because, in the model's hand at the far left of the frame is, God forbid, a cigarette!
