Best known for his celebrated paintings of classical odalisques, Ingres reveals his provocative and erotic art in this collection of sensual drawings. This book places the intimate drawings and paintings of Ingres within the context of the old masters and elucidates his place in the evolution of art in the nineteenth century. Famous for his iconic paintings of "The Grand Odalisque" and "The Turkish Bath", Ingres was also an artist of great erotic intensity and raw sexuality. Baudelaire described him as a painter of "profound sensual delight[s]." Ingres' work is saturated with erotic images, drawings, and paintings, as well as several provocative photographs. The author explores all aspects of his work, both public and private facets, through general themes, as well as minute details. This lascivious repertoire resembles the game of love itself: it's all a matter of approach. The painter's intimate works should not be studied simply as the symptom or as a literal expression of the secret and unfulfilled desires of the painter; Ingres was indeed a more carnal man than is commonly known; his correspondence indicates it and his paintbrush confirms it. Inviting us to discover the inherent inventiveness and the multiple motivations for creating this erotic oeuvre, the book explores a rich and often over-looked aspect of Ingres' art.
