Uproar over paintings at Iceland Central Bank

Reported in Iceland Review:

The Central Bank of Iceland’s recent decision to take down two paintings by Gunnlaugur Blöndal featuring nude women has caused an uproar. Vísir reports that the decision was spurred by complaints from employees, who considered the artwork and its placement inappropriate. Artists and art enthusiasts have criticised the decision as prudish, lamenting that the work has been placed in storage and out of view.

Well, central banks have to deal with so many controversies anyways. Why invite more at the first place?
