Publisher Comments:

From Rembrandt to Picasso and from Boucher to Matisse

The worldwide and enduring success of Erotica Universalis Volume I has obliged us to forge further ahead into the field of erotic works, and to return with a second volume. The aim of the first volume was to illustrate that from the dawn of time, ever since Adam and Eve, all artists of every age - whether the Egyptian, Greek and Roman artists of Antiquity, or such famous names as Rembrandt, Courbet, Degas or Picasso that are closer to our time - have succumbed to their fantasies, obsessions and libido, and produced erotic works that the censors have taken good care to keep from the public.

With Erotica Universalis Volume II, we surface from the subterranean realms of the museums to enter the subterranean realms of our libraries, both national or private. Here we discover that not only most of our famous writers, such as Ovid, Aretino, Voltaire, Verlaine or Maupassant, wrote erotic texts that bordered on indecency, but also that great artists like Boucher, Fragonard, Dalí or Matisse were inspired to provide suitable illustrations for these naughty books.

The great names act as key attractions, but they are accompanied by a horde of anonymous talents that we have unearthed for you, who demonstrate a healthy and truly prodigious sense of invention. In Erotica Universalis Volume II, the illustrations of each work are given in full, in reduced format, and are accompanied with a brief but revealing summary of the text. A banquet for the imagination and a feast of the eye...

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to the first volume--which illustrated the erotic works of artists from the dawn of time--erotic, frivolous, and obscene book illustrations from Rembrandt to Picasso, from Boucher to Matisse, are featured in reduced format. 700 illustrations.
