Over the last century, many artists have made works that challenge dominant models of gender and sexuality. The results can be sexy or serious, satirical or tender, discreetly coded or defiantly outspoken.

This beautiful book illustrates the wide variety of queer art from around the world - exploring bodies and identity, love and desire, prejudice and protest through drawing, painting, photography, sculpture and installation. 70 outstanding works - from 1900 to the present - reveal how queer experiences have differed across time and place, and how art has been part of a story of changing attitudes and emerging identities.

Featuring works by, among others, Egon Schiele, Duncan Grant, Claude Cahun, Hannah Hoch, Frida Kahlo, David Hockney, Glenn Ligon, Zanele Muholi, Allyson Mitchell and Tomoko Kashiki - all of whom subverted the norms of their day via bold, new forms of expression, A Queer Little History of Art is a celebration of over 100 years of queer creativity.

“Glorious”

A wonderfully packaged little history book! I didn't know some of the artists at all, nor that some were gay, so a lovely introduction to new art for me. It's a book to dip in and out of, and each time, I... More
