  1. This is a strange art site.
    I am uncomfortable with such a narrow focus on seductive looking little .girls
    We should never forget lewis carroll almost spent life in prison for asking alice to mary him when she was only 11 years old.
    the page below has a nude 14 year old with breasts

    I have collect art all my life, much with nude women, buts thats adult

    some of these pictures are questionable.

  2. I don’t agree. Not all the paintings posted here are always necessarily to my liking. But I’m not here to judge. I’m simply trying to give space to any kind of artistic expression and I’m deeply convinced that art should not have limits and that an artist should be able to express himself/herself. Cultural background differences influence the viewers perspective and art seems to be interpreted in different ways depending on the person who looks at it. The dividing line among art and obscenity can sometimes be narrow and although moral standards concerning the display of nudity in art have changed the question still stands. For example, Gustave Courbet’s “The Origin of the World” was seized by the police and european courts as public pornography for its close-up view of female genitals. Today this painting is considered a work of art. Google and Blogger too can’t tell the difference between art and obscenity, between Bouguereau and a porno star, and they would put panties on Botticelli’s Venus too. And according to Facebook’s guidelines the image of a mother breastfeeding her child is pornography, hence it should be banned. Who is to judge this? One can say the holocaust never happened, rock music is subversive and decadent, some paintings are trash. We have the right to disagree and criticize but censorship is not the answer. I think an artist has a right to free speech and expression, as each of us has the right to express our opinion and point of view, and so does the viewer. We all can choose to look at something or not. It’s our great privilege.
    More than 2.000 artists and more than 17.000 paintings have been posted here. I’m aware that you cannot please everyone all the time and I’m sorry about that, but I don’t think that a dozen of “unpleasant” paintings can degrade the overall quality of the site.

    p.s.: Lewis Caroll never went to jail. The allegations of paedophilia probably rose from a misunderstanding of Victorian morals. The marriage proposal to the 11-year old Alice Liddell is just a literary assumption, not a certainty. But, in any case, I’m not interested in artists private lives. Caravaggio was a street brawler, gang member and murderer. Arthur Rimbaud was a gunrunner and a slave trader…I’m only interested in the result of their artistic works. From a literary point of view “Alice in Wonderland” is a masterpiece (as well as Nabokov’s “Lolita”) and this is all that counts, in my opinion.
