Sexual Explosion – World’s Most Famous Bare Painting since Picasso, Dali and Modigliani’s Nudes

Sexual Explosion by Jim Warren:
You may recall my post about artist Modigliani’s nudes that were considered in the early 20th century. Recently, another painting presumed too scandalous to be demonstrated in the past has suddenly become an acclaimed, hugely popular piece of contemporary art. I’m talking about Jim Warren’s “Sexual Explosion.” It was previously banned in the U.S. in the 1970s for being overly “obscene and sexually explicit.” It is interesting how our perceptions change over time of what is considered overly sexual or explicit. This painting was made at the start of a sexual revolution in the U.S., so does it reveal how far we’ve come? These days, pornographic pictures turn up everywhere on the Internet and have become considerably more explicit than this. Though society has loosened up in its forbearance of overt sexual imagery, it does not mean America has become less puritanical with sex and nudity. This piece is a bit less subtle than Modigliani in its sexual tones, but I do find it incredible how much significance is subtly portrayed by her pose. In spite of it being hidden away for decades, the surreal painting is now a huge happening in the art world. It has even been named the “World’s Most Famous Nude Painting since Picasso, Dali and Modigliani’s Nudes”!
What do you guys think of this current bare art? Might it be worthy of being the most famous naked painting? Today could it still be labeled “sexually explicit”?
