It’s Rubens vs. Facebook in fight over artistic nudity

In this photo taken on Thursday, July 26, 2018, a visitor looks at the restored Peter Paul Rubens self portrait from 1628 in the Rubenshouse in Antwerp, Belgium. Belgian museums are uniting in protest against Facebook since they cannot promote Flemish masters like Rubens at will for falling foul of the social media site’s adult content rules.

This includes nudity, depictions of people in explicit or suggestive positions, or activities that are overly suggestive or sexually provocative.”(AP Photo/Olivier Matthys)
