Acccepted Art (Now)

A short, light-hearted blurb from the "A Look at the World's Week" section of of Life magazine about the purchase of September Morn by the Metropolitan Museum in 1957. 

Accepted Art (Now)

When it first appeared in the U. S. 44 years ago, September Morn, a painting of a modest nude, caused a moralistic furor. But when it finally attained the distinction of being exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum last week it outraged nobody. Said museum worker James Sigliano (left), "I had one of her in the living room but my wife put her up in the attic."
