Masterpieces of erotic heritage
Paintings, sculptures, decorations, places, monuments...
Is there a heritage of sex and licentiousness, remarkable or unusual artistic and architectural forms dealing with sexuality and its mores? Our museums, like the territory, are full of them! This book proposes to discover the way in which sexuality, its symbols and representations, inhabit the history of our French heritage resources and approach three worlds: that of museums, territories and night. To each of these spaces, real or imaginary, corresponds a glance.
Within each of these themes, the progression will be chronological, addressing examples from the oldest to the most recent. The analysis of the works will be combined with a reflection on their heritage value: what controversies have they raised, what debates? How were they looked at in the past and where do they fit in today? The book will also present focuses, allowing us to analyse a work in depth and place it in its historical context; and stories that put us in the footsteps of writers or artists who have commented on and grasped the importance of this heritage of eroticism and licentiousness.
