    They probably thought that was Kim Kardashian in her famous spandex outfit getting into a car so that was acceptable.

    From the link in the OP:
    In the screen grab of the report on Fox5NY, which covers New York City, the nipples of three female figures are blurred out, despite its significance as a major artwork.

    I think they counted wrong. Isn't that a fourth figure at the very front that was cut out as well? Mind you, I can only make it out when standing on my head.

    Good for them nipples are not attractive, jmo. And Picasso paintings are way over glorified or looked at as art when they are nothing to look at to me, like some demented person painting. jmo idk weird to me.

    Aside from individual aesthetic taste, jmo it's pretty funny that a producer thought these were even remotely realistic nipples :)

    I think they're given so much weight in the "art world" because he helped to pioneer Cubism - people just naturally associate his name with it. His older works(Blue Period, Rose Period, etc.) show that he was a fantastic realistic artist.

    This article makes me laugh hysterically. Why, I see plenty of real nipples(unattractive ones, imo, to be sure) every day on people mowing their lawns - in public! - and I have never once needed to get the smelling salts out to revive myself as as a result.

    I suspect that most people wouldn't be all that offended by seeing this, either, if they'd left it the way it was(though I may be wrong).
