Dry your eyes, Kim Kardashian: You're a modern-day Mona Lisa!

On Sunday's episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kim, 30, burst into tears over her naked pictorial spread in W Magazine -- claiming she was misled, she moaned that the pics were "full-on porn."

But W mag sees it differently. On Tuesday, a rep for the fashion bible told fashion blog The Cut:

"In keeping in line with the theme of W Magazine's November Art Issue, Kim Kardashian's cover was conceived as an artistic collaboration with well-known artist Barbara Kruger, and was a meditation on the influence that reality TV has on contemporary culture."

Praising the E! star's cultural influence, the W rep continued: "The inside portfolio documented the career and power of Kim Kardashian as a work of art, using the language of artists like Jeff Koons ... and Gilbert & George."

Kim's complaint about the photos: "The whole concept was sold to me that nothing would be seen." Threatened the star: "I'm never taking my clothes off again, even if it's for Vogue."
