I was rediscovering some of the images from my Copy Klimt post today and remembered Milo Manara. The Italian artist and comic book writer creates illustrations and art with a unifying erotic element. While I am yet to discover all his wonderful work (made harder by the fact that all pages about him seem to be in other languages!) his Sensualitars book seems extremely engaging and I would love to get my hands on a copy. The book looks at the relationship between artists and their models and covers a wide period of art history. He works in various mediums to express each artist and pay tribute to the models who inspired many of the great pieces we still love today. In addition to the art, Manara provides a written commentary on the relationships and connections as well as his personal thoughts. I found a few images which showcase Manara’s work alongside the artist he is recognising (Manara on the right, artist on the left), but the book has 44 original images in total.
really interesting! would love to get a copy of that book as well.
I know! Would be a fascinating book. Must look into where it is stocked!
