Manchester Art Gallery has removed a classic Waterhouse painting featuring pubescent, naked nymphs. James O'Brien wants to know if you think they are right.
John William Waterhouse’s Hylas and the Nymphs shows the young girls enticing a young man into the water.
The gallery has removed the painting, saying they wanted to start a conversation about how art is displayed in modern times.
In the space where the picture was, visitors can leave post-it notes saying whether they agree.
James wants to know what you think? Is this censorship, or is it an important item of our cultural history?
