MOSCOW, August 12 (RAPSI) – The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has found that Artplay company violated the advertising law when promoting art exhibition “Bosch. Visions Alive,” the watchdog reports in a press-release on Friday.

A concerned citizen has turned to FAS with a complaint about an advertisement containing a reproduction of Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights” triptych fragments.

Upon reviewing the case materials, the agency concluded that on the whole the images of people in the advertisement were indecent and thus contravened the federal advertising law.

FAS issued an order to rectify the violation addressed to Artplay, which was found to be the organizer and advertiser of the exhibition. The antimonopoly agency is also working on materials needed to initiate an administrative case against the company, which may face a fine amounting from 100,000 to 500,000 rubles ($1,500 to $8,000).

According to the advertising law, no profanities, indecent or abusive images, comparisons and expressions relating to gender, race, ethnicity, profession, social status, age, language, official state or religious symbols, as well as national and UNESCO heritage objects are allowed in advertisements, whereas advertisers should be responsible for respective violations.
