A painting by Winston Churchill that depicts a woman and a child in a bedroom has been removed from a Washington, D.C., house after the painting sparked an outcry from a local resident.
The painting depicts a naked woman and two children in a bed and an image of a woman with her legs spread open in a pose that some called offensive, the Associated Press reported.
Churchill, who died in 1974, died on April 26 and was memorialized in a mural on a wall outside the White House.
The House of Commons on Wednesday removed the painting, a painting of the late U.S. President and First Lady that was purchased for $2,200 in 1892 and installed in a house in Washington, the AP reported.
The woman’s head, with her arms and legs spread wide, appears to be covered with a blanket and the children’s heads appear to be on top of her.
Churchills portrait of the U.K. Prime Minister and his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, and a young boy on the same painting is also on display at the Whitehouse.
In a statement to the AP, the House of Representatives painted an image in which the painting was replaced with an image showing Churchill standing on the porch of the home where the painting is located.
The artist who painted the painting has been offered $300,000 in compensation, but he declined to comment, according to the House, which did not name him.
Churchilling’s portrait has been at the top of the House’s list of things to remove since a painting by U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres was removed in May.
Guterres, who was the UN secretary-general from 1997 to 2001, also used the painting to illustrate his speeches and speeches at the UN.
