Does it become art if it's older than 50 years?

What's all the fuss about? They're historical paintings - not necessarily art, but a glimpse into their lives. Weren't the Romans also quite a bit more open about this stuff? So live with it... it's part of history.

Sorry, just had to rant a little bit after the tone the article took...

Simon, are you talking about the old Playboys you used to hide from your parents? Because if that's the case, they are totally art.

Oh. My. How wonderful! (I'm being SERIOUS.)

Lick your eyebrows and you're my best friend. LOL!
