An Israeli art college removed a student’s painting from a year-end exhibit that depicted a naked woman with the face of Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked.

The removal of the painting at the Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art, a public college in Ramat Gan near Tel Aviv, prompted a department head to resign.

Larry Abramson, the head of Shenkar’s Multidisciplinary Art School, tendered his resignation Sunday after the painting was removed from the exhibit of senior student final projects before it opened Thursday. The face was covered up first before the painting was removed.
