Accompanying an exhibition of 56 erotic drawings by French Surrealist Andre Masson (1896-1987), this catalogue examines connections between the sexually graphic works produced by the artist throughout his career and the erotic tableaux of Gustave Courbet (1819-1877), particularly his scandalous painting L'Origine du monde (1866). Includes five brief introductory texts discussing the artistic and personal significance of the sexual themes explored by the painters along with a series of previously unpublished letters written to Courbet and to several of his colleagues by a woman with whom the painter was briefly involved.
