Forever Venus

This small volume explores a personal selection of other artists’ interpretations of the most beautiful woman ever conceived, and compares how various perceptions of beauty changed in time and place. 

The author, whose profession once purported to create beauty, has selected diverse examples of this erotic segment of art, and has delved into the sexual drivers which have created lasting images of artistic joy.

He has abstracted them from diversions which might have drawn the eye off the magnificence of the flesh, or the sitters’ allure, by his reductive watercolours, and he has occasionally taken liberties in his translations.
