This fascinating book takes as its starting point the recurrent motif of Venus as the associated figure of Cupid in Western art from the Renaissance to the present day. Original essays investigate issues of art, gender, and sexuality, and bring a particular moment into vivid focus, looking at specific works of painting, sculpture, design, or photography. The essays not only make important contributions to art history, but also to the historical field, and to cultural and gender studies.
