Lost stash of 400 erotic drawings by Duncan Grant comes to light

An extraordinary stash of more than 400 erotic drawings by Duncan Grant that was long thought to have been destroyed has come to light, secretly passed down over decades from friend to friend and lover to lover.

Grant was a key member of the Bloomsbury group and one of the most celebrated and successful British artists of the mid-20th century. As a gay man he lived the first 82 years of his life as a criminal.

In the 1940s and 50s Grant made hundreds of drawings, many of them explicit and often influenced by Greco-Roman traditions as well as contemporary physique magazines.

WOW, amazing!

Never heard of him, thanks OP.

Yes, thanks OP. IMHO, erotic art is usually anything but. These, however, are quite beautiful.

Cousin of Lytton Strachey; had a baby with Vanessa Bell.

This is sick!!!

It's something of a miracle that they weren't destroyed. John Ruskin supposedly destroyed Turner's erotic drawings when he was in charge of the estate.

The Bloomsbury Group was wild. Duncan's (secret) daughter with Vanessa married Duncan's ex, David Garnett, when she grew up.

So he painted when the man go up into the man?

400 drawings found but the OP's link only shows two of them.

I don't buy it. At least not from what I'm seeing in the article. Perhaps the British bar for artistic talent & expression was especially low during that time.

Smells like a really well fabricated story to bring in counterfeits.

Makes me horny.

Can I have one of your cocks?

Yes, I don't believe these drawings were "lost". They were archived and now they're being publicised to get a good price.

Apparently he liked BBC.

He was regarded as strikingly handsome and IIRC had a fling with JM Keynes.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
