Another delight for Art Lovers

  • Oct 2, 1999
Rating:
+5
SEX: Portraits of Passion may entice novice fine art book buyers and maybe even curious voyeurs, and that will add to the audience for this thoughtful overview of figurative art throughout the centuries. Perhaps the title and chapter content of the written word will afford a bridge for readers who may not be art lovers, but these days such introductions are always welcome to build appreciation for art history and contemporary art. Generously and beautifully illustrated with paintings, sculpture and photography this little tome is a banquet for discovering new artists among the Old Masters. In the wake of the Brooklyn Museum press, this rich survey enjoys itself, provides beauty, and teases our senses in a way that is healthy, fun, and informative. A natural gift for friends and lovers!

About this book

Wiki

An arousing selection of extremely sensuous and explicit artwork and photographs, combined with passionate prose and poetry. Divided into themed chapters that follow the course of a love affair, each section is introduced by a brief essay, followed by powerful images with extended captions about the works and the artists, together with literary quotes from great writers on love and sex.
