Erotic art covers any artistic work that is intended to evoke erotic arousal or that depicts scenes of love-making. It includes paintings, engravings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, music and writing.
Defining erotic art is difficult since perceptions of both what is erotic and what is art fluctuate. A sculpture of a phallus in some African cultures may be considered a traditional symbol of potency though not overtly erotic.
In addition, a distinction is often made between erotic art and pornography (which also depicts scenes of love-making and is intended to evoke erotic arousal, but is not usually considered art). The distinction may lie in intent and message; erotic art would be items intended as pieces of art, encapturing formal elements of art, and drawing on other historical artworks. Pornography may also use these tools, but is primarily intended to arouse one sexually. Nevertheless, these elements of distinction are highly subjective.
Erotic art still celebrates the beauty of the human body. The vase carvings and paintings in Ancient Greek art where erotic in nature but the Greeks had a aperception of the human body that elevated to its purest forms. Other artists during the years took erotic art to different levels still respecting the human form. Gustav Klimt is one of them. His female sketches, sensuous and delicate, depicted masturbation in a beautiful way.
Somewhat forget other forms of erotic art, for example Shibary and Kinbaky.Not just canvas perfect for erotic pictures, there is a body painting as an art forma.We can discuss them or be limited to previously?
