Museum of Erotic Art

Aubrey Beardsley - Salome, page 9 detailThe Saatchi Gallery has begun an ambitious database of museums around the world (CLICK). I had a dip and look what I found: The British Museum of Erotic Art! Strewth! Don't panic! It's online only and its first two exhibitions - by Alan Daniels and by Ray Leaning - are very prim and proper: stocking tops and high heels. This is about as near to eroticism as Brits get. It's all rather soppy, but I did glimpse an Aubrey Beardsley, so there's hope yet. For potential art students, Saatchi is offering another new database: art colleges around the world (CLICK).
