Summary
"Pictures and Passions is the first comprehensive survey of gay and lesbian visual expression in all media, from the dawn of time to the present day. Superseding more narrowly focused studies, this sweeping overview - encompassing art by, for, or about lesbians and gays - scans a panorama of visual images across the world and across time, from Europe and North America to China and Australia, from the Stone Age to the Stonewall riot and beyond."--BOOK JACKET. "Intended as a thoughtful introduction for the general reader, the book will also appeal to students, artists, and all those interested in visual pleasures of remarkable variety and sophistication."--Jacket
