Summary: The incident of painter Li Zhuangping having his daughter be his nude model has caused heated discussion. I rarely see any in thier reviews and opinions. I really don't see the problem. Not all people associate nudity with sex I know I certainly don't. And honestly, those paintings are most definitely tasteful The general concept and whatnot I don't really consider all too tasteful. I see nothing wrong with the concept of painting one's own kin in the buff. Nudity is not inherently sexual.
