Historians agree on the fact that pornography was invented by the ancient Greek painter Parrhasios. According to historical texts, he was a master, but, unfortunately, none of his works have survived. Crude representations of man’s desire have disappeared with­out a trace. Those who follow are destined to constantly reinvent and imagine what lies behind words and bodies.

In the great museum of the history of painting, an empty picture rail re­mains, with a plaque indicating the lost work.
