This is a sober, scholarly survey, based on a definition of erotic which, in practice, is so broad that it includes any work implying the existence of two sexes. It also reveals that modern erotic art is produced largely by men and that on the whole they take a joyless, apprehensive view of the business. 8 color plates, 350 black and white illustrations. Translated by Peter Newmark.
