Description:From the Publisher: The book is illustrated with many beautiful and often daring works by Leonardo, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Canova, Lucien Freud, and Robert Mapplethorpe, among others. A Hidden Love considers the many styles and strategies by which artists, sculptors, and photographers have elaborated on the essence of homosexuality in Ancient Greece and Rome, the Renaissance and Baroque movements, Chinese and Japanese erotica, the nineteenth century, the official art of Fascism, and finally the modern and contemporary eras. Throughout, Fernandez considers the morality of each society, comparing artistic success and acceptance across the centuries. He arrives at astonishing conclusions which demand a fundamental reassessment of art history and the creative process, and which can be extended far beyond the realm of homosexuality in art.
