Positive Portrayals of Sex in Art: Francois Boucher's "Hercules and Omphale"

sex in art

Although there are thousands and thousands of sexual works in art museums, this is painting is particularly explicit for a Western oil painting. The stylized, wriggling lines, warm colors, overall composition and the gestures of the figures are all nicely integrated into the scene. A wonderful and sexy work of art.
