Natalie Krim greets me outside her house in Central LA wearing kitten heels, a pencil skirt and a prim button down blouse. How does the female gaze change the sexual stereotypes portrayed in your drawings? I feel my drawings are for women, I never think about trying to get a reaction out of a man.
On this page you can find various antique erotic drawings and illustrations. I don't know where any of these illustrations came from or what exactly their theme is. If you know anything about these antique erotic illustrations and drawings please send me an email.
The Erotica Bibliophile is an ongoing research project on vintage erotica and erotic art published between the 18th and early 20th centuries, including: the history of erotic literature, a collection of the vintage erotic illustrations and drawings, and information on the publishers and artists. Many of the important erotica illustrators active during that period are represented here through their drawings as well as many detailed check-lists of publications that contain that artist's work; artists which include: Martin van Maele, Felicien Rops, Luc Lafnet, Louis Maltese, Paul Avril, etc. If it's the publishers of vintage clandestine erotica that you're interested in you will find extensive, annotated checklists and information in general on publishers such as Charles Carrington Paul FerdinandoWilliam Dugdale and Jean Fort Collection des Orties Blanches.
The twelve chapters each cover a specific class of dishes — from exotic courses to fish and shellfish to vegetables — rendered with a surrealist twist both gastronomically and aesthetically, but nowhere more so than in the tenth chapter, dedicated to aphrodisiacs. We would like to state clearly that, beginning with the very first recipes, Les Diners de Galawith its precepts and its illustrations, is uniquely devoted to the pleasures of Taste. We intend to ignore those charts and tables in which chemistry takes the place of gastronomy. If you are a disciple of one of those calorie-counters who turn the joys of eating into a form of punishment, close this book at once; it is too lively, too aggressive, and far too impertinent for you.
Erotic art covers any artistic work that is intended to evoke erotic arousal or that depicts scenes of sexual activity. It is a type of erotica and includes drawings, engravings, films, paintings, photographs, and sculptures, and writing. The definition of erotic art is somewhat subjective, and dependent on context since perceptions of both what is erotic and what is art vary.
Watch out! Creating as I read, I converted each page into a work of art with blackout poetry, collage, and mixed media visuals. This Kickstarter offers both book collections and a limited number of original drawings from those books.
Since the beginning of civilization, humans have incorporated sexuality into erotic art, worship, and daily life. There have been cultures and times were explicit references to sexuality were more accepted by societal norms, and times when there have not. However, the repressive view of sexuality espoused by the Church in the Middle Ages, and then the repressed sexuality of the Victorian era have left many in the Western world believing that few if any in the past were willing and able to accept and even revel in their sexuality.
In the first half of the 20th century they did, however, have their providers, and one of them was Irving Klawthe self-proclaimed Pin Up King. He was a pioneer in fetish art, and obviously had an eye for recognizing a special sort of edgy beauty of his era. Klaw was a photographer and a filmmaker, but prior to that he used to sell movie star stills, which brought him great popularity. With help from his sister Paula, Klaw gradually made a burlesque empire of his own called Nutrixphotographing models that became big stars later on — Tempest Storm, Blaze Starr, Baby Lake.
