"A ravishing new book from Phaidon that celebrates the long line of artists who have understood that sensuality is to art as salt is to eggs." --Out"Chronicles our love affair with love affairs." --Timeline"A comprehensive and chronological insight into the fluid ways in which creators depict human sexuality." --Red"Giving a glimpse into the more salacious work of legendary photographers and visual artists - The Art of the Erotic is a new title from Phaidon featuring beautiful examples of eroticism throughout history from Georgia O'Keeffe, Nobuyoshi Araki, Wolfgang Tillmans and many more... An enlightening reminder of our universal attraction to artful arousal."--HungerTV.com"Ravishing... Although many works aim to titillate, the erotic remains tantalisingly transcendent."--AnOtherMag"Hats off to the publishers Phaidon for making the cover of their latest tome, The Art of the Erotic, a more subtle (rather than slutty) affair. The fold-out cover, which unravels and re-assembles into a slit, is inspired by Lucio Fontana's 1950s series, Concetto Spaziale. More than 170 sexed-up works are featured including an Athenian cup dating from 470BC, Gustave Courbet's The Origin of the World (1866) and Thomas Ruff's Nudes ru 05 (Nud 053) (2000). Bruce Nauman, Titian, Nan Goldin and Cecily Brown also pop up in the arty erotic overview."--The Art Newspaper
