Erotic Art, Volumes 1 and 2

It is clear from the collection presented here that erotic art is not the preoccupation of the perverted few, but of the creative geniuses of all times, and that it is meant for the enjoyment of the many. As modern society sheds the unnatural taboos with which primitive fear and superstition have surrounded sexuality, erotic art may yet become a mark of gracious living in the home and a vital force in the visual arts themselves perhaps their last, still largely unexplored frontier.

This book stems from the First International Exhibition of Erotic Art, which took place in public museums in the cities of Lund, Sweden, and Aarhus, Denmark, during the summer and fall of 1968. Based on the private collection of psychologists Phyllis and Eberhard Kronhausen, the exhibition was supplemented by loans from museums, galleries, and private collections. It included over a thousand examples of erotic pictures and statuary from ancient to modern times and from such different cultures as India, China, Japan, Africa, Europe, and the United States.

The historical significance of the exh
ibition lies in the fact that this was the first time state- and city-supported museums had dared to present a show devoted exclusively to frankly erotic art.

Notable in Volume 2 is a group of erotic watercolors by George Grosz, which has never been published before. Likewise, there is a significant body of erotic works by Hans Bellmer and Karel Appel, which is generally unknown, despite these artists' large followings. The examples of early Western erotic art shown here (excluding the Greek and Roman) provide an interesting background to the present-day American and European artists whose work is included, for the early pieces are mostly in a romantic lyrical strain while the moderns cover an enormous range of styles.

Drs. Phyllis and Eberhard Kronhausen, authors of the bestselling Pornography and the Law and Erotic Bookplates, have worked together in their analytic practice and psychological research for many years. After postgraduate work at Columbia University, they were for many years in private practice in California, specializing in family therapy and group guidance. Since then they have gained world renown for their efforts to liberalize censorship laws and for their work in the field of sex education
