From: Arts and Morality in Ancient and Renaissance Italy
Two hundred years after Michelangelo painted his masterpieces in the Sistine chapel, some people within the Vatican, with papal permisssion, commissioned "breeches-painters" to cover what they called "the disgusting and ungodly site of the human body."
Clearly that later episode followed artistic traditions established in Pompeii
