Description - 1000 Erotic Works of Genius by Hans-Jurgen Dopp

Erotic images have met with varying degrees of acceptance throughout history and have always proposed new ideas of erotica, as demonstrated by the works reproduced in this book. From ancient fertility statues to Renaissance engravings designed to encourage procreation within marriage, erotic art has always held an important place in society. Here, for the first time, 1,000 authentic images of erotic art have been brought together, spanning centuries and civilisations to demonstrate the evolution of the genre. In an era such as ours when eroticism is abundant in advertising and the media, this book gives a refreshing insight into the background of erotic imagery, highlighting the artistic value of beautiful works of eroticism executed with ski.
