A selection of the most touching and transformative expressions of romantic love drawn from Tate Gallery's art collection. Divided among key themes- such as courtship, passion, symbolism, enduring love and even loss- each of the 50 works of art included has been individually selectedfor the particular way in which the artist has attempted to capture theineffable, affirmative, devotional aspects of love. Works of art - including paintings, drawings, sculptures, illustrations andinstallations - are punctuated by brief captions adding background detailor additional information about the art, artists and their subjects. Contains a wide range of artwork and depictions of opposite gender partnerships but also same-sex couples too, so it's got a definate queer accent to it. 

Sometimes chaste, sometimes frenzied, often passionate andoccasionally heartbreaking, placed together these beautiful imagescreate a fascinating and enlightening journey through the visualportrayal of love and sexuality in Western art. Proposed artists for inclusion: Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Wolfgang Tillmans, David Hockney, Sunil Gupta, Diane Arbus, Gwen John, Simeon Solomon, Auguste Rodin, William Blake, Bandele `Tex' Ajetunmobi, Duncan Grant, Christopher Wool, Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Sylvia Sleigh, SophieCalle and many, many more. Makes a beautiful little gift.
