Art Under Attack: Histories of British IconoclasmPaintings, sculpture, objects and archive material highlighting the history of physical attacks on art in Britain from the 16th century to the present day are displayed at Tate Britain in Art Under Attack: Histories Of British Iconoclasm. Works include pieces by Thomas Johnson, Edward Burne-Jones, Gustav Metzger, Yoko Ono and Jake and Dinos Chapman. Included in the display is the pre-Reformation, Statue of the Dead Christ, circa 1500-20, loaned from the collection of the Worshipful Company of Mercers. The damaged sculpture, on loan for the first time, forms the centrepiece of the show - its missing crown of thorns, arms and lower legs are thought to be the result of an attack by religious reformers in the 16th century.
