Edward Lucie-Smith's study of the role of sexuality and sexual symbolism in Western art is in two sections: the first traces sexuality in art historically, from the prehistoric 'Venus' of Willendorf to Tom Wesselmann's Great American Nude (1967); part two looks at symbols and subject matter, including the female nude, the sexual act and deviations. First published in 1972.
