LONDON Britains Tate art collection says it has removed more than 30 prints by the artist Graham Ovenden from its online collection after his conviction for child sex offenses.
He was found guilty of six charges of indecency with a child and one count of indecent assault. Prosecutors accused him of abusing children while they modeled for him, but he 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 Ovendens 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.
