Women pass by a poster with naked soccer players covered with a red paper stripe, advertising an art exhibition in Vienna October 17, 2012. Vienna's Leopold Museum has decided to cover the "intimate parts" of three naked male soccer players on large posters put up in the Austrian capital after they caused an outcry. The "Naked Men" exhibition, which opens on Friday and runs until January 28, 2013, is designed to show how the depiction of male nudity has evolved in art history. Around 300 art works - including the controversial photograph by French artists Pierre & Gilles called "Vive La France" of three men of different races wearing nothing but blue, white and red socks and soccer boots - will be on display.
