Up until recently, few people knew that Harry Carmean had created a large body of erotic art in his later life. Although his work has always had a romantic and sensual quality, it was not until the mid 1980’s that Carmean actually took the plunge and created overtly erotic pieces. He began the series by making drawings which over time evolved into different mediums including etchings, sculptures, watercolors and oil paintings.
A spectacular series of etchings was begun in the late 1990's on through the 2000's. A few proofs were first printed by Carmean on his own etching press and then the complete edition was printed later by master printer John Greco, the owner of Josephine Press in Los Angeles. Some of these stunning and highly amusing erotic prints are currently available at the Poetic Eye art gallery on ebay. In the late 1990's on through the 2000's Carmean continued making erotic drawings, as well as paintings and small watercolor sketches. Most of the work has never been exhibited so there is a treasure trove of amazing pieces that have been yet to be seen by the public.
