Prank Photo From the Louvre, Banned on Facebook

, , , ,


Four women playfully strip in emulation of Jean-Baptiste Regnault‘s Les Trois Grâces, (1799) in the Louvre.

This photo turned up yesterday on the feed of one of my European correspondents on Facebook. I was curious, and when I looked into into its background, I found the picture first appeared a year ago, also on Facebook, from which it was promptly removed on grounds of allegedly violating FB’s “community standards.”

The original poster (possibly the photographer?), one Jim Harris, responded indignantly to FB’s censorship on HuffPo.
