Oh, My! The Grey Lady Opens the Kimono All the Way

As the eyeverting staff has noted on several occasions, the New York Times has gradually become more – ahem – adventurous in the images it’s willing to publish.

There was, for example, this ulp-skirt image in a Louis Vuitton ad a couple of years ago.

Then last year the Times ran this full-frontal ad for a Robert Rauschenberg exhibit at Pace Gallery.

Now comes this Gagosian Gallery ad in yesterday’s Times.

Zowee, as Osgood Fielding III said in Some Like It Hot.

Of course, we love Amedeo Modigliani (John Currin, on the other hand, is a bit of a freak). But, man, talk about a sign o’ the Times . . .
