This text presents an overview of gay art from the beginning of recorded time to the present: works about gay themes by identifiably gay artists or for gay patrons. Saslow carefully examines the classical world, in which homoerotic love was recorded, celebrated, and satirized in the visual arts, and he examines the ways in which the guilt-free acceptance and institutionalized dignity the Greeks accorded to homosexuality have persisted as a nostalgic symbol of lost arcadian ideals in nearly every later civilization.

Summary: Pictures and Passions is a sweeping panorama of art by, for, or about gays and lesbians across the world and across time, from Europe and North America to China and Australia, from the Stone Age to the Stonewall riot and beyond. This book breaks down the walls of prejudice and silence that have long imprisoned a visual heritage rich in beauty, passion, and humor.Through prehistoric and classical times, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Stonewall, and today, James M. Saslow explores the flowering of lesbian and gay art and experience. Included here are non-Western cultures (Asia and Islam), hostile as well as positive images, traditional media such as painting and sculpture, and modern commercial and mass media such as magazines and photography.
