A tapestry of Pablo Picasso’s powerful anti-war tableau “Guernica” [which] has hung outside the U.N. Security Council since 1985… has been covered with a baby-blue banner and the U.N. logo…. U.N. officials said last week that it is more appropriate for dignitaries to be photographed in front of the blue backdrop and some flags than the impressionist image of shattered villagers and livestock.

It simply won’t do to have the Security Council discussing war with a searing painting of war’s impact in view. Just because it’s been done for decades doesn’t mean it’s ok now. Wouldn’t be prudent.
