The National Gallery has removed a picture of an artwork from an upcoming major exhibition from its website over its antisemitic portrayal of Jews.

Albrecht Dürer’s Christ Among the Doctors from 1509 depicts a story from the Gospel according to Luke of Jesus on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem for Passover, alongside an antisemitic caricature of Jewish men from synagogue.
