Overview

SEX IN ART: POROGRAPHY AND PLEASURE IN THE HISTORY OF ART

A comprehensive and detailed survey of erotic art from ancient times to the modern era.

All of the major erotic artists of the Western tradition are analyzed (including Egon Schiele, Hans Bellmer, Thomas Rowlandson, Pablo Picasso, Titian, Jean Baptiste Dominique Ingres, Felicien Rops, Leonardo da Vinci, Edgar Degas, and Eric Gill).

Other chapters include erotica in ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt, Oriental erotic art (Taoist and Tantric art from China, Japan and India), gender and eroticism in Renaissance art, and the sensuality of sculpture. Each chapter contains illustrations. A discussion of the complex relationship between art and pornography provides the central critical axis for this challenging book. Each of the major views on erotica and porn are examined, from each political persuasion and argument. There are also chapters on censorship, on feminism, and the relation of erotic art to erotic literature.

There are individual sections on many of the key erotic artists, such as Michelangelo Buonaroti, Leonardo da Vinci, Eric Gill, Gustave Moreau, the Surrealists, Jasper Johns, Constantin Brancusi, Egon Schiele, and Gustav Klimt.

This new edition contains many new illustrations (some of which are rare), an updated and revised text, a new introduction and bibliography.
