Museum Bums: A Cheeky Look at Butts in Art

Museum Bums: A Cheeky Look at Butts in Art

Mark Small & Jack Shoulder

Chronicle Books

Based on the eponymous Twitter account, Museum Bums is a celebration of shapely derrieres in classical art. Divided into six categories of bottoms, this humorous history book takes you on a whirlwind tour of the finest rear ends in museums around the world, from the lusciously rendered asses of Renaissance painting to the abstract curves of contemporary art and including an angel slyly copping a feel in a 16th century triptych, a 25,000 year-old bodacious Venus and Cezanne’s booty-ful bathers. There is also a 2024 wall calendar.
