9783822889633: Erotica Universalis Volume I

Wonderfully indecent pictures from famous scribblers and anonymous talents alike (TASCHEN's 25th anniversary special edition) From the dawn of time, ever since Adam and Eve, all artists of every age?whether the Egyptian, Greek and Roman artists of Antiquity, or more recent famous names as Rembrandt, Courbet, Degas or Picasso?have succumbed to their fantasies, obsessions and libido, and produced erotic works that the censors have taken good care to keep from the public. For Erotica, we surface from the subterranean realms of the museums to enter those of our national and private libraries. Here we discover that not only most of our famous writers, such as Ovid, Aretino, Voltaire, Verlaine or Maupassant, wrote erotic texts that bordered on indecency, but also that great artists like Boucher, Fragonard, Dal? or Matisse were inspired to provide suitable illustrations for these naughty books. Special anniversary edition of highlights from our Erotica Universalis collection!

Book Description TASCHEN, 1994. Couverture souple. Book Condition: Neuf. Dust Jacket Condition: Comme neuf. De tous temps les artistes, écrivains ou illustrateurs ont défié la censure et montré que la sexualité était chose naturelle. Aujourd'hui que la censure a perdu de son utilité, il n'est plus possible d'ignorer un secteur important de la littérature et de l'art que les tabous n'avaient cessé d'occulter. C'est chose faite avec ce second volume d'Erotica universalis consacré pour l'essentiel à l'image. Les choix iconographiques vont du XVIIe au XXe siècle et sont extrêmement variés ; ils couvrent les plus grands noms de l'art comme les anonymes. Impossible de tout citer ici, mais on navigue entre les gravures érotiques de Rembrandt, les "grivoiseries" de Boucher, le carnet de dessins de jeunesse d'Ingres ; les poèmes illustrés de Raymond Radiguet, Pierre Louys ou Apollinaire ; les romans populaires ou d'initiation du début du XXe siècle, les dessins désarticulés de Hans Bellmer pour ses illustrations de Sade, Baudelaire ou Bataille ; jusqu'aux bandes dessinées de Robert Crumb dans les années soixante aux États-Unis. -------------- Cet ouvrage est trilingue, en français, anglais et allemand, pour les textes de présentation des oeuvres. --Sylvie Lécallier ----------------------Broché: 755 pages Editeur : Taschen GmbH (10 octobre 1994) Collection : Klotz Langue : Anglais / FRANÇAIS / ALLEMAND; ISBN-10: 3822889636 ISBN-13: 978-3822889633 Dimensions du produit: 20 x 5,2 x 14 cm.
