Faces of Ecstasy

Faces of Ecstasy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The climax to the act of love casts an indefinable expression on the face--an expression of urgent intensity. A women, a man, in that moment experiences an ecstasy that for an instant is visible in the eyes and on the lips. A wave of pleasure runs through the body, marking the transition between desire and orgasm. For this fleeting second, when just how violent the sense can be is laid bare, the person immediately before or the person immediately after. With the help of prints and etchings from former centuries, author Hans-Jurgen Dopp looks for an explanation of this very personal mystery that leads to fulfillment.

Synopsis:

A recently-launched collection that explores, among other themes, the mystery of eroticism from an artistic point of view.

About the Author

Dopp taught for a number of years at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt, where he held a chair of psychoanalytical interpretation, as well as the cultural history of erotic art. For the past thirty years, he has been an avid collector of erotic art and has gained international recognition through various exhibitions and publications.
