Erotic: Passion & Desire

7th February 2018 - 15th February 2018

Artists throughout history have been drawn to the human form. Whether it is to compel, to shock or seduce, these artworks remain one of the central subjects of art history while intimately charting the socio-political developments of our many cultures – both old and new.

Perhaps no more so than today does the representation of the naked body permeate our society. Explored through painting, sculpture, drawings, photography, books, design and more, Erotic: Passion and Desire will take the viewer on a journey through the centuries to discover exceptional works of art that focus on this genre.

The pre-Columbian sculpture will be paired with Picasso works on paper; masters of photography from Man Ray to Mapplethorpe will be set off against 19th-century marbles and antique reliefs; in turn, creating juxtapositions that will enliven and deepen collectors’ understanding of this subject matter.

WARNING Please be advised that this sale includes images of nudity and images of a sexual nature which some viewers may consider indecent.
