Images of Sex and Desire in Renaissance Art and Modern Historiography Visual Culture in Early Modernity
“Images of Sex and Desire in Renaissance Art and Modern Historiography: Visual Culture in Early Modernity” by Angeliki Pollali and Berthold Hub is a groundbreaking exploration of the complex relationship between art, sexuality, and historical interpretation during the Renaissance period.
In this meticulously researched and thought-provoking book, Pollali and Hub delve deep into the visual culture of the Renaissance, examining how images of sex and desire were created, consumed, and understood by both artists and viewers. They argue that these images were not merely representations of eroticism, but rather served as powerful tools for shaping and negotiating social, cultural, and political identities.
The authors start by tracing the origins of Renaissance art and its connection to the human.
