[Erotisme - Gay - Art érotique]
When originally published in 1972, A Historic Collection of Gay Art was the first book of its kind to document expressions of gay male sexuality as depicted in visual art, from antiquity to pop culture. Its frank, unapologetic survey of the pleasures of the flesh was, for gay men, unprecedented, and it remains the starting point for modern-day discussions of erotic gay male art and comics. It features erotic line drawings and other artwork, from ancient Greece to '70s America, by artists both anonymous and infamous (including Tom of Finland, Graewolf, Blade, and Aubrey Beardsley), as well as an insightful narrative that provides a historical context for these images, including their production and dissemination. This new, updated edition includes a preface by one of the book's original editors, on the story of its publication at a time when celebratiing of gay men's sexuality was still dangerous.
