L'origine du Monde by Courbet


We've been having a discussion in my French class about whether children should be shown L'origine du Monde. If you're not familiar with the painting, you'll have to Google it, I'm not sure if I'll get in trouble for posting it here. It was painted by Gustave Courbet in 1866 and is currently hanging in Montpellier's Musee Fabre. I decided that children won't understand it as art, but if they see it, it shouldn't be a big deal. After all, it's just a representation of the human body in a very natural state. Not at all somehing I think parents should scare or shame kids about. What do you think?
