Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With each new technological advance, pornography has proliferated and  degraded in quality. Today, porn is everywhere, but where is it art? 25,000 Years of Erotic Freedom surveys the history of pornography and argues that the success and vibrancy of a society relates to its permissiveness in sexual matters.

This history of erotic art brings together some of the most provocative illustrations ever published, showcasing the evolution of pornography over diverse cultures from prehistoric to modern times. Beginning with the Venus of Willendorf, created between 24,000-22,000 bce, and book-ended by contemporary photography, it also contains a timeline covering major erotic works in several cultures. 25,000 Years of Erotic Freedom ably captures the ancient and insuppressible creative drive of the sexual spirit, making this book a treatise on erotic art.

Synopsis:

Surveying the history of pornography, this work brings together some of the most provocative illustrations ever published, showcasing the evolution of erotic art over diverse cultures from prehistoric to modern times.

Synopsis:

Eroticism is a truly universal topic, a subject that has always fascinated humankind. Erotic art is telling: It reveals much about an era, a culture, and psychology; it can be sweet, aggressive, soothing, or wild. Erotic Art explores the history of erotic art and presents paintings, drawings, etchings, sculptures, and more by Titian, Picasso, and Keith Haring, by Bernini, Rodin, and Giacometti, and from ancient Greece, Rome, China, Japan, India, and the Middle East. Reproduced in lush color with close-up details, the art is accompanied by texts that offer insights into how to read the different works. In this book, erotic art gives up its secrets.

Praise for How to Read Erotic Art:

andquot;The lush illustrations together with the texts . . . make How to Read Erotic Art an informative, fun, and sexy addition to any collection.andquot; andmdash;The Huffington Post
