The Collection | Artworks

Sterne’s writings have always attracted illustrators and painters. He writes of intimate encounters between men and women but leaves the reader unsure as to who has the upper hand. Is one taking advantage of the other, or is the encounter mutually beneficial? Artists have created works that reflect this duplicity of intent.
