Nude Image of Brooke Shields Removed From British Museum

Prince, using the original image with Gross' permission, simply took a photo of Gross' photo, framed it and called it "Spiritual America." The piece was originally displayed anonymously in a New York store front and then, in 2007, at the Guggenheim in New York

Brooke Shields started modeling and acting at a young age and starred in several movies, including "Pretty Baby" in 1978, where she played a child prostitute in a role that also sparked charges of exploitation.

"Pop Life: Art in a Material World," which, according to the Tate Modern press office, "proposes a rereading of one of the major legacies of Pop Art," opened to the public today. It features a slew of provocative pieces, including Jeff Koons' display, "Made in Heaven," which displays several self-portraits of genitalia and the artist's graphic sexual exploits, as well as Takashi Murakami's sculpture of a big-breasted, blue-haired female skipping a rope made of her own breast milk. Other artists in the exhibit include Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst.
