At Chiswick Auctions our Erotica sales are carefully curated to feature a wide range of alluring and sometimes provocative objects produced over many years and from cultures old and new.
Human interest in eroticism is nothing new with early examples date back to Palaeolithic cave paintings, a tradition and fascination that has continued to modern day. The form of erotic art is by no means fixed and touches on all areas including painting, sculpture, silver, furniture, photography, glass, cigarette cases, textiles, and literature: all showcasing the myriad of ways different traditions and cultures have viewed sex and sexuality.
Previous sales have included photography from Michael Roberts, Tom Bianchi and Jock Sturges as well as bronze sculptures, Victorian cigarette cases, Indian Erotic scenes, Chinese paintings, and carved snuff bottles and works by Tracey Emin bringing us right up to the here and now.
