Derived from eros, the Greek word for human, physical love, the term 'Erotic Art' encompasses the artistic expression of sexuality throughout human history. In this fully illustrated volume, Grove Art Essentials presents a global survey of erotic art from ancient civilizations to the Western art historical cannon, the arts of Asia, and the Islamic world. Beneath the overarching banner of eroticism, this title explores imagery both explicitly and implicitly sexual, as well as the conflict of cultural taboos, such as codes of behaviour, prudery, and censorship, which influenced erotic art through the ages.
