Degenerate Art tags soon to be implemented at the discretion of the reddit admins.

I'm not whether to laugh or cry...

This reminds me of a French news website that had its adsense account revoked for a time because they, to illustrate an article, an image of a nude woman.

Here is the source (2013, in French): Numerama (a tech news website) was reporting on a picture, published on the facebook page of a French museum, of a woman whose breasts were showing. The point of the article was that the facebook page had been censored. Following the article, google censored Numerama telling them to delete the photo if they wanted to have their adsense account reactivated.

As another user had posted on reddit, this painting was already the subject of a lawsuit involving facebook.

I remember. In 2011, a Danish artist, Frode Steinicke, had his facebook page banned. Some month later the same happened to a French professor, who then decided to sue Facebook.

I found an update from March 2015 on this (still in French, sorry): Facebook had tried to argue that the French justice system shouldn't take the case because the user (the professor), by using their service, had accepted any litigations to be tried in the US state were Facebook is registered.

The article linked says that the French tribunal judged itself apt at judging this affair, creating an interesting précédent.

I might be alone here, but what exactly is the problem with this? Is warning people that certain artworks contain nudity such a big thing?

I don't get it either. If a photograph of something would require an NSFW tag then why wouldn't a realistic painting? This is currently on that sub (NSFW, btw). Is it really that hard to understand why people would want that tagged NSFW? I don't see any drawback to doing so.

Maybe because when you see that tag you are already going into it with certain expectations, I mean where else do you see NSFW pictures on reddit often it's either porn or gore and people will unconsciously associate that picture with either porn or gore, so how you perceive paintings will not be in an artistic sense and then you have the old questions what should be titled NSFW and what shouldn't (insert Fox News joke here)

And most of all r/museum never hit all so it's not like you stumbled upon it by chance if you actually hang around there you know what kinds of pictures you can except (hint Tom of Finnland).

Maybe the mods don't want people who'd feel offended by nudity.

Right, but the whole point of NSFW tags isn't that you yourself are necessarily offended by nudity, it's that you're in an environment where it could get you in trouble, like showing your kids how to use computers or giving a presentation on "the internet"
