Manchester Art Gallery has found its way into news coverage over the past few days since its controversial decision to take down a famous pre-Raphaelite painting. Hylas and the Nymphs, the 1896 classic by JW Waterhouse, depicts a seductive scene of naked women, enticing the young Hylas into their lake. The curators have explained that the removal of the piece was intended to spark discussion around the representation of women in art and media, reflecting the current climate of discussion and debate surrounding sexual exploitation and harassment. Visitors are encouraged to leave post-it notes where the painting once hung, giving their reactions to the decision. The debate has now spread to mainstream media, with many feeling outraged by the ideas of artistic censorship and extreme political correctness.
