Problem with nudity?

    What is nudity?

    Now that may seem like a simple question. It also might sound like a stupid question. I�m talking about the kind of nudity that can get you in trouble on Hubpages.

    I would like to include a famous painting (not to worry, public domain) by an old master in a hub I am writing. The painting is �Adam and Eve� by Titian in 1570. Eve is topless and Adam is touching one of her love apples. Other important parts belonging to both are covered by fig leaves.

    You'll probably want to read this section of the FAQ,

    http://hubpages.com/faq/#what_is_allowed

    especially this point,

    relache, I did read the FAQ before I posted this thread. Doesn't answer my question, exactly.

    Deborah Sexton, well I guess I might write to the staff . . . or not. But isn't this about the same thing as that?

    Hey, well maybe I'll just post the pic here on this thread. If the pic gets deleted or I get banned, I'll know not to use it in a hub.

      If you're asking, is writing this on the forum the same as writing the staff, the answer is no.

    In my opinion, if it is a painting and not a photograph I think it's okay...

    This hub has a nude painting and is still up

      Thank you. Now that is the sort of answer I was looking for.

      Incidentally, the nude painting of which you speak is on display at the Museum of Modern Art, New York City. The painting of which I speak is on display at Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain.

        Yes indeed, Uninvited Writer, it would appear you are correct about nude paintings being acceptable. Provided of course they are presented in a tasteful manner.

        I have undertaken a thorough search of hubs pertaining to the matter at question. I discovered hubs such as "to see you naked is to recall the earth: nude paintings of the female form" and "Why Celebrities Pose Nude for Paintings" that I consider quite tasteful.
