But Mr Trumble said even if an artist was convicted of a crime, the gallery may not remove their works from display.

Meet Japan's 'Black Widow': the accused killer the world can't stop talking about.

  Meet Japan's 'Black Widow': the accused killer the world can't stop talking about. A 70-year-old woman who has been dubbed Japan’s ‘Black Widow’, accused of the fatal cyanide poisonings of her husband and other men, has sensationally admitted to killing her late husband in her Kyoto trial. Chisako Kakehi is on trial at the Kyoto District Court for the alleged murders of her husband, two boyfriends and the attempted murder of another boyfriend. As she took the stand on Monday, Ms Kakehi –  who has been on trial since June 26 – said she killed 75-year-old Isao Kakehi in December 2013 because she “wasn’t given any money” after she married him. Ms Kakehi and her husband had only been married a month when he collapsed in their home.

That work was a photographic portrait of Indonesian President Joko Widodo, which was temporarily taken down the morning after the execution of Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.

"I took the view and I made a judgement that public sentiment was so strong, and we had actually received a threat against the work of art, and in the interest of the safety of my staff and of our visitors, I took the view that it was necessary to take it down," Mr Trumble said.

The National Portrait Gallery also has in its collection a number of portraits of and by convicted sex offender Rolf Harris.

But Mr Trumble said the gallery never had to make a decision about those, because those works were already out of display when Harris was charged.

"In that case … it seems to us appropriate for his works and his image to remain off display for the time being," he said.

"There will be a time I think when Rolf Harris has something to say about the character of fame and of celebrity in the second half of the 20th century, but that time is not now."

Mr Trumble said the crucial issue was finding the line "that separates the detached verdict of history from current passion".

"Today … he's the same man, but he now forms part of the extremely important and contested, still contested story of the Irish in Australia."

Melissa Beowulf, Bjorn Beowulf and Thorsten Beowulf plan to fight the charges over the alleged murder of 81-year-old Katherine Panin.

They are expected to appear again in December.
