Gustav Courbet : History of Erotic Art Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) was an Austrian artist from Vienna who was one of the pioneers of Symbolism and Art Nouveau who is best known for his paintings though was also an incredibly prolific draftsman. "All art is erotic" — Gustav Klimt We usually use self portraits of the artists on ErotiCart, however Klimt famously has no self portrait and is popularly quoted saying "I have never painted a self-portrait. I am less interested in myself as a subject for a painting than I am in other people, above all women...There is nothing special about me. I am a painter who paints day after day from morning to night...Who ever wants to know something about me... ought to look carefully at my pictures."

The Art of Aubrey Beardsley (A Collection of His Works) I started this project about 3 years ago, when I took a razor blade to an already falling apart copy of "The Early Works of Aubrey Beardsley" (Dover Edition 1967) and scanned in all of the images. I've taken a few liberties with color corrections, scaling, and compositing of multi-page images. Some may be ever so slightly skewed because of the way they were scanned in, meaning - very primitively using a relatively crummy $40 Plustek flatbed. A labour of love in the truest sense, the purpose of this site is not to infringe on anyone's copyrights, and I will endeavour to quote and annotate all of my sources.

Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner: Rare Photos, 1949 Is he the greatest living painter in the United States? That was the direct, provocative question asked in an August 1949 LIFE magazine article that helped cement Jackson Pollock’s reputation. It was a question Pollock spent much of the rest of his life struggling to answer — while desperately hoping to show the skeptics why LIFE was right to even ask such a monumental question in the first place.

Bridget Riley Loss (1964) Black to White Discs (1961-62) Ease (1987) Джорджия О’Киф Джорджия О’Киф: портрет - фото Альфреда Стиглица Родился: 15 ноября 1887 г.; Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, United States Умер: 6 марта 1986 г.; Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States Сфера деятельности: живопись Национальность: Американец Electrifying Photography Robert Buelteman uses high voltage photography Forget the notion of a reverent nature photographer tiptoeing through the woods, camera slung over one shoulder, patiently looking for perfect light. Robert Buelteman works indoors in total darkness, forsaking cameras, lenses, and computers for jumper cables, fiber optics, and 80,000 volts of electricity. This bizarre union of Dr. Frankenstein and Georgia O’Keeffe spawns photos that seem to portray the life force of his subjects as the very process destroys them.

PRE-RAPHAELITE ART Archive Random Submit Ask List of Paintings by Artist The short-lived but highly influential Pre-Raphaelite movement was a reform group of artists and poets founded in 1849. Their main objective in art was to reject the dramatic, artificial Mannerist painting styles succeeding Raphael and Michelangelo (hence the term "Pre-Raphaelite") and to create more genuine, humble representations of their subjects. They painted brightly-colored, evenly-lit scenes with a particular emphasis on romanticism, elaborate detail, medieval history, symbolism, and nature. Updated frequently.
