Available in Stock
Since prehistoric times, across cultures and millennia, artists have been inspired by the human body as an object of desire. This authoritative, insightful and lavishly illustrated volume examines its depiction through the ages, in ancient Greece and Rome, India, China and Japan, and in works by masters such as Titian, Caravaggio, Goya, Ingres, Rodin and Warhol. Close-ups reveal telling clues to the meaning of these sometimes explicit images, and the often conflicted attitudes of the societies that created them. Sexually explicit.
