What We Call Love explores how the notion of love has evolved within the 20th century. How have seismic sociological changes concerning sexuality, marriage and intimacy affected the way we conceive love today? How does visual art, from Surrealism to the present day, deal with love? This book draws on Surrealism's idea of love as "l'amour fou" (mad love) and new visions of love which emerged after the 1960s.
