By Anita Singh , Showbusiness Editor. The child actress is shown standing naked in a bathtub, staring directly at the viewer, with a heavily-made up face and an oiled torso. So controversial is the photograph that it has been separated from the other exhibits and hangs in its own room behind a closed door. A notice on the door warns visitors that they may find the work "challenging". It is the first time that the piece, entitled Spiritual America , has been displayed in a British gallery, although it has been shown in the US.
Cops Block Naked Brooke Shields Pic in Art Gallery
Brooke Shields Nude Photographer Garry Gross Dies - Artlyst
A display due to go on show to the public at Tate Modern tomorrow has been withdrawn after a warning from Scotland Yard that the naked image of actor Brooke Shields aged 10 and heavily made up could break obscenity laws. It has been removed from display after a visit to Tate Modern by officers from the obscene publications unit of the Metropolitan police. The exhibition had been open to members of the Tate today before opening to the public tomorrow. A Tate spokeswoman confirmed that the display had been "temporarily closed down" and the catalogue for the exhibition withdrawn from sale. The work had been accompanied by a warning, and the Tate had sought legal advice before displaying it. The decision by officers to visit Tate Modern is understood to have been made after police chiefs saw coverage of the exhibition in today's newspapers, rather than as a result of complaints.

September 30th, , am. The image on the left is NOT the photo in question and she is not 10 in that photo. Wouldn't post the pic here anyway. A nude photograph of Brooke Shields at the age of ten is to be displayed at the Tate Modern.
