Representation of cultural change in the New York; Description of the scenery; Discussion of the erotic art of German surrealist Hans Bellmer; View that Bellmer uses the liberating iconographic devices of surrealism to create metamorphic images that convey his preoccupation with the human body; Opinion of Bellmer on proliferating visions of all-embracing physicality, conventional distinctions of sex roles, body structure and behavior that are engulfed by the force of his erotic imagination; Information on the works of artist Rackstraw Downes; Fact that Downes is one of that new breed of artist-teachers who have found their way into the traditionally scholarly, often philistine confines of Ivy League schools.
