The BBC has reported that the Edinburgh Airport has done a bit of  a striptease with its posters advertising the Picasso and Modern British Art exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art which feature Picasso’s Nude Woman in a Red Armchair painted in 1932 and on loan from the Tate.  It appears that after a few complaints over the nudity in the painting the airport covered the image, however this action caused a deluge of complaints from the Gallery and passengers furious about not being able to take a look at the stylized breasts and labia majora of Picasso’s mistress Marie-Thérèse.  Luckily for art lovers and voyeurs entering Scotland, the airport reconsidered its act of censorship and opted to display Marie-Thérèse in her full naked splendor.  The BBC reports,

An Edinburgh Airport spokesperson said: “We have now reviewed our original decision and reinstated the image.

“The initial decision was a reaction to passenger feedback, which we do always take seriously.

“However on reflection we are more than happy to display the image in the terminal and we’d like to apologise, particularly to the exhibition organisers, for the confusion.”
