Sexuality in Ancient Art is the first anthology on the visual representation of the sexual body, sexual activity and desire, and the role of sexuality in the formation of personality and social institutions. Bringing together essays by historians of the art of Egypt and the Ancient Near East, Greece, the Etruscans, and Rome, this collection demonstrates how a variety of methods and theoretical frames can be used to define and articulate these issues. The goal of this volume is to open a range of new subjects and approaches in the visual arts and the problems of representation to students and scholars of the ancient world.
