Not only a Czech essayist, Dadaist, and influential leader of the Czech Surrealist, as well as an architect, painter, writer, social activist, a key figure of typographic aesthetics ...

His collection of collages were both provocative and surreal, and show Teige as not only a talented artist, but adept at social criticism as well.

Egon Schiele "The Radical Nude" @ The Courtauld Gallery, London

Erotica // Wednesday, October 22, 2014
It is funny to include these groundbreaking works in an Erotica section, yet looking at it another way, these works pratcially invented the term. From The Courtauld: Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) is one of the most important artists of the early 20th century and a central figure of Austrian Expressionism. This exhibition brings together an outstanding group of the artist’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short but urgent career. Schiele’s technical virtuosity, highly original vision and unflinching depictions of the naked figure distinguish these works as being among his most significant contributions to the development of modern art.

Hauntingly Beautiful by Alexis Wood

Erotica // Thursday, October 09, 2014
Photographer Alexis Wood has a great resume shooting for high-end and widely read fashion mags, but we love this new series she shot called "Hauntingly Beautiful" featuring model Annamarie Bartolozzi. Of course putting someone in the woods with a good photographer is going to make for a good shoot, but the use of facepaint and costume makes this particularly an interesting take on fine art and fashion photography.
