LONDON (AP) — Britain’s Tate art collection says it has removed more than 30 prints by the artist Graham Ovenden from its online collection following his conviction for child sex offenses.
The 70-year-old artist was found guilty Tuesday of six charges of indecency with a child and one count of indecent assault. Prosecutors accused Ovenden of abusing children while they modeled for him, but he had denied all charges.
In a statement Thursday, the Tate — which runs the Tate Modern and Tate Britain galleries in London — said it is seeking further information after Ovenden’s conviction, and will pull his prints from its online collection until it finishes a review.
The 34 prints, given to the Tate in 1975, include images of naked young girls.
