The Tate has removed several works by Cornish artist Graham Ovenden from the its online collection following his conviction for child sex offences.

The Tate owns 34 prints.

A spokeswoman for the gallery said: "Graham Ovenden is an artist of note, whose work has been widely shown over more than 40 years.

"However, following his conviction at Truro Crown Court, the Tate is seekng further information and is reviewing the online presentation of those editioned prints by him that are held in the national collection.

"Until this review is complete, the images will not be available online and the works will not be available to view by appointment."

The works were acquired in 1975, many from Mayfair art dealer the Waddington Galleries, which exhibited Ovenden's work in the early 1970s.

Many of the 34 works, dating from 1970-1975, depict children.

One of the prints that has been taken off the site is a screenprint that features an image of a young naked child.

Ovenden was found guilty of six charges of indecency with a child and one allegation of indecent assault by a jury on Tuesday.

He was acquitted of two indecent assaults and the jury earlier found Ovenden not guilty of three charges of indecent assault on the direction of the judge, Graham Cottle.

Ovenden had denied all the charges relating to four children between 1972 and 1985.

Sentencing was adjourned until a later date and Ovenden, who lives near Bodmin Moor, was released on bail.
