    Question Would you let your small children see nude art?

    Sculptures, but more specifically paintings or even portraits of nudes that were classified as art.

    Probably not. They'd be too young to appreciate it anyway and it's not like I fancy the stuff enough to keep it in the house. lol

    The human body isn't a shameful thing. There are some beautiful works of art out there so I don't think it would really be an issue with me.

    Eh, depends on what it is. I wouldn't freak out if they saw a boob. They wouldn't be saturated with it though.

    Did y'all know in the Rip van Winkle episode of the Flintstones, Barney Rubble had a naked lady painting in his home?

    Sure as long as there was no sex or violence in the mix. Art is different and normally it is not lascivious. I remember once being in a movie with my young son, it was a comedy and showed a woman rip her shirt open and I automatically put my hand over his eyes. After I gave it some thought I wondered why I did that. I had to decide then what was better for a kid to see , a nude body, or violence or even worse sex and violence together.

    LOL, I'm not going to cover their eyes if we're walking around a museum.

    ROFLMAO!
    I just remembered when my father tried to do that to me. He had taken me to see an old James Bond movie...I think it was Thunderball. I must have been around 11. I guess he had already seen it because he tried to send me out to get popcorn or something during the opening credits that were shown over silhouettes of women that could have been naked (but probably weren't). I went but he said I was walking up the aisle backwards.

    If it is actually "art" (like what they have in the Louvre), then I wouldn't have a problem with it. If it was "pornography" then NO. And I'd have to be the judge of whether or not it was actually artful or gratuituous.

    I wouldn't cover their eyes, but we wouldn't stay in that section.
