Tate Museum temporarily removes Image of 10-year-old Brooke Shields.
T he Richard Prince photograph of Brooke Shields that Tate Modern recently withdrew from the exhibition Pop Life, after Scotland Yard suggested it might break obscenity laws, travelled across the Atlantic carrying a long history of controversy. It shows a year-old Shields, oiled and glistening, naked and made-up, posing in a marble bathtub with a seductive danger that belies her years. It tells you everything about what we fear and desire. Prince, Schorr tells me, has never met Shields. Intent on questioning notions of authorship and originality, he rephotographed an existing image that had already inspired two years of legal debate. It was one of a dozen images of Shields designed, according to Gross, to reveal the not-so-latent sexuality of the prepubescent child. Prince enshrined it as a kind of coda to celebrate freedom of expression. I think she was happy when Richard took the picture and made something of it because it was a big fuck you to Garry Gross. Gross, 71, continues to exercise his right to sell pictures of Shields, though eBay prevented him from auctioning prints of them on its site.

Brooke Shields: ‘I got out pretty unscathed’
The piece shows a year-old Shields, nude, oiled, and heavily made-up, standing in a bathtub and looking directly at the camera. The Tate Modern took down the provocative piece called "Spiritual America" by American artist, Richard Prince, after Metropolitan Police launched an investigation. The temporary closure of the room where the photo was exhibited comes after the Metropolitan Police said they were investigating to see if the artwork might violate obscenity laws. The Obscene Publications Committee, a division of the Metropolitan Police department in London, requested the temporary removal of the piece, on the grounds that it might violate the Obscene Publications Act of , which states its intention to "strengthen the law for preventing the publication for gain of obscene matter. Due to the photograph's controversial nature, the Tate Modern says it sought legal advice before deciding to display the piece and planned to display it behind a curtain in a dark room with a sign in front warning viewers of "challenging" material. We are in discussion with the police," said a Tate spokesman. The police have been working with the Crown Prosecution Service, that works with the police and the courts, to determine whether or not the piece should go back on display.
This series of photographs has been the source for controversy for decades. The girl in the background of this meme is indeed a naked year-old Shields, and the photograph was truly published by Playboy. Although this meme may have given some viewers the impression that the image appeared in Playboy magazine itself, the picture was actually featured in the Playboy Press publication Sugar and Spice. Suddenly the pictures acquired a new and alluring value; and suddenly Brooke and Mom decided that, with the book out of print, Gross had no business peddling the pictures anywhere else, even though Mom had signed a release for them.
