Dad Paints Naked Pictures of His Daughter

Is an artist who paints his daughter in the buff crossing the line?

I wouldn't care how good a painter my husband was -- if he had the idea to paint our daughter in the nude, he'd be signing divorce papers faster than you could say "Picasso."

But a 61-year-old artist in China, Li Zhuang Ping, has apparently been painting his 23-year-old daughter for the past six years -- and some of the paintings border on soft porn. Creeepy.

Some have berated the father and daughter for crossing the lines of morality and criticized their actions as distasteful. But the dad says he only began using his daughter as a nude model "after getting her approval." Whew. That's a load off our minds.

We asked psychologist Dr. Michelle Golland what she makes of this strange artistic alliance. "Since she's not a minor," says Dr. Gollard, "I have to think to myself, is someone being harmed in this scenario?. Is there a history of abuse in the past? If not, she's an adult and can make the decisions for herself. "

What do you think. Do these pictures take "Daddy's little girl" one step too far?

this just crosses a sacred line, in my opinion … fathers shouldn’t be seeing their grown daughters naked

MERELY LOOKING IS NOT A CRIME UNTILL WE HARM SOME BODY.THE FATHER DARED TO DO SOME THING NEW ONLY TO ENHANCE HIS FAME AND AFTERWARDS THE INCOME.WE MUST LOOK IT WITH A SENSE OF ART AND NOT WITH A GREED.WE MUST ADMIRE BEAUTY WHICH IS JUST NATURAL AND INNOCENT.IT IS ONLY OUR MIND WHICH MAKES THE THINGS DIRTY OR TIDY.I MEAN THAT——- PEOPLE HATING IT THEMSELVES POSSES A DIRTY MIND

This is just adorable.

When I look at those pictures I think the girl’s a precious masterpiece of Mother Nature and the beast is a guard-man. In fact I’ve got a story of myself: my father had helped me to find the way to escape from a bad boy. I found that a real father always wants to protect his adorable daughter from danger. Here I look at the beasts in those pictures and I feel that.

Behind every artwork there’s a story, and I think it’s wonderful that a father has his talent express his strong feeling of a father who knows his job. I see the pride of him, he’s got a beautiful daughter that everybody wants and he’s got a way to show that it’s not easy for anyone to touch her.

And I think the girl feels safe as she’s got her father beside her, she has no fear and she has the freedom to show up her beauty.

Maybe she’d felt that her father was the only artist that paints her because he’s proud of her - not proud of his talent. Some artists paints nude pix because they just want to show their sense of art, you know.

Why is it ok for a father to bathe, clothe, care for a naked daughter and likewise a mother for a son, until they reach puberty - then the dad-daughter scenario is taboo. Naturist families walk around nude and think nothing of it. If two adults are happy with the arrangement regardless of family relationship then it is their choice. I don’t personally have a problem looking at a beautiful nude picture regardless of who painted it.

As a naturalist , it is a beauty to be able to share and express nudity in art form.

josh April 15, 2009, 7:53 AM

both are consenting adults .Nude painting is an art and since the daughter had agreed to be painted nude by her dad , it is fine.

This is love , bondage between daughter and dad . The dad showed his love in his strokes and the ways he admired her naked beauty.

In my personal opinion i think the paintings are very artistic an expressive..May be the painter is expressing how beutiful and special is his daughter to him..different other people have different opinions so no one should anyone.

I don’t think his mind is sicker than the minds of all those who criticize him. In fact, it might be pristine.

Come on, let them do what they want.

This is wonderful art, and in any event there is nothing wrong or even questionable about casual family nudity. Americans get offended over it for some reason, as it it were a moral issue, but millions of families are clothing casual. And these paintings are lovely representations of her body as it will only be at this time in her life. Hopefully there are such pieces dating from her earlier days as well.

no problem here, my son is now 20 and walks around naked. i like seeing him that way and he knows it.

Para todos esto es un abuso del llamado artista, a faltado a al moral de un padre y aun mas ser llamado “artista”. el respeto a la familia creo que es lo mas importante

I think there must be some form of attraction for his daughter.. Probably kind of obsession, fascination, distorted maybe. I’m an artist too, and i love to draw things that interest me most, i.e. females anatomy. Sometimes, adore by it, and sometimes sexually attracted to it… weird huh! afterall, it just an illustration. My point is, you never know what’s going on between them behind closed door. Whatever happens in there remains their own business and their own little world. Who are we to judge, anyway. If both mutually agree with it, who cares..

Could I have a word of advice? I’m sure you’ve had sth great over here. However what if you also added some references to a website that backs up what youre saying? Or simply you may provide us with something to check out, something would link up just what you are talking about, something more tangible?
