Iran to sell hidden nude masterpieces
"Tehran Museum director says parliament approved sale of 15 to 30 Western works in bid to build up art collection....
...Iran has decided to sell several nude paintings it bought in the 1970s during the shah's rule, masterpieces which have been kept out of public view since the Islamic revolution on moral grounds...."

That sounds pretty foolish, but the only think we can do is to feel sorry to lose these masterpieces...
