Just got the book - this book covers erotic art from French impressionist ART to modern day.

The slight disappointment is the misleading cover (which is a great painting by Sorayama) - which would looked photographic and made me think it was this was a photography book.

I did enjoy the various interpretations of erotic ART, but in the end, this may not be a keeper for me. Just know what you are getting, that's all !

Masterpieces may be stretching it a bit - but the book is 9/10 on its way. The photos are stunning, the models are stunning and the photography doesn't give you that "Damn. College kids can get into anything nowadays," feeling. If I had one thing to tell you, it's to get your hands on some page markers Book Darts 50 Line Markers, as there will be pages you go back to again, and again. There are - within the hard covers of this book - some breathtaking photos, and easily being able to reference them is great.

Stunning art and the text is interesting and even though there were some pieces that I wasn't particularly fond of, I found the explanations quite enlightening. The colors were absolutely stunning and anyone would be proud to place this hardcover art book on their coffee table. I especially liked the pinup art, and the Japanese works.

First I should admit that when I saw the phrase "erotic art" in the title, I thought photographs rather than illustrations/drawings, and this book most definitely contains the latter. Despite that, if more of the illustrations had been similar to the one on the cover, I would have been happier with the book as a whole. Unfortunately, many of the drawings are rather crude - I claim no expertise in the field of art, but I think it's rather a stretch to call very many of these drawings a "masterpiece." A more fitting title might be "history of erotic art."

It is filled with more ancient works than I expected. Not quite as visually stimulating as the cover image. Still a nice book to thumb through.
