Erotic Artists: Naming Names

byCal Y. Pygia©

Literotica Editor's Note: though the text of this article doesn't meet our 750+ word requirement, we as art enthusiasts thought this list may be of interest to readers.

*

This isn't an article, an essay, or a review, really (so the editorial powers that be may quash it), but, if they don't, it will serve its purpose, which is to alert Literotica readers of names of artists and photographers whose work contains erotic or nude work that is well worth viewing and maybe even saving to one's hard drive or to one or more--probably more--compact discs, for personal (and private) use only, of course. Much of this work is copyrighted, but that doesn't mean you cannot access and save it. Just don't distribute it--at least not without the creator's permission.

Some of this art is gay, lesbian, or bisexual; some involves sadomasochism or BDSM; some is transsexual or transgender; much is heterosexual; a bit includes bestiality; many are simply beautiful or handsome nudes; and many other varieties. In viewing these drawings and paintings, one might keep before him or her August Rodin's maxim, "In art, immortality cannot exist. Art is always sacred."

Anyway, here's the list of names, in no particular order:
