JOHANNESBURG—South African President Jacob Zuma has withdrawn his legal case against a gallery that displayed a portrait depicting his genitals.

The agreement, in which the Goodman Gallery said it "regrets the pain that the display of the painting has caused," was announced Wednesday by Zuma's governing African National Congress and the gallery director at a news conference at the Johannesburg gallery.

Gallery director Liza Essers says the image will also be removed from the gallery website as a 'gesture of goodwill.' Two men defaced the image last week as Zuma and the ANC brought the case to court.
