Portsmouth cathedral removes 'distressing' nude paintings

From England-

A cathedral has withdrawn a series of nude paintings from an art exhibition after attracting complaints.
    Portsmouth's Anglican cathedral said "worshippers expressed distress" at the four depictions of women by artist Joe Greenwood.

    It said it had agreed with exhibition organisers to remove the work, in order to "balance the needs" of all visitors.

    Mr Greenwood, 40, said he was unhappy that his work had been deemed "inappropriate".
    He said: "While I'm obviously disappointed that my opportunity to exhibit has been affected... I don't bear a grudge against any of the parties involved."
