Visitors look at the painting "Adam and Eve" by Flemish master Peter Paul Rubens in the Rubenshouse in Antwerp, Belgium. Belgian museums are uniting in protest against Facebook since they cannot promote Flemish masters like Rubens at will for falling foul of the social media site’s adult content rules. Facebook says it has more restrictive rules when it comes to advertising which “must not contain adult content. This includes nudity, depictions of people in explicit or suggestive positions, or activities that are overly suggestive or sexually provocative.”

A mural of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega stands defaced at a campaign house for the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) in Catarina, Nicaragua after anti-government demonstrators clashed with FSLN supporters and police. Protests in which dozens of people were killed amid a harsh crackdown by police and government-allied civilians have weakened Ortega, one of the few leftist leaders remaining in power in Latin America, forcing him to pull back on social security reforms that sparked the unrest and facing a newly emboldened opposition determined to see him leave office.

We know of musicians, writers, mathematicians being boy geniuses. Somehow, painting seemed immune to prodigies. Advait Kolarkar, 4 (!), breaks the mould. His canvases, inspired by galaxies, dinosaurs and dragons merited a solo exhibition in his hometown, New Brunswick, in Canada, and then was displayed at the ArtExpo in New York. And no, he’s no Vin­cent in the garret. Advait is already selling his stuff for thousands of dollars.
