Museum Bums: A Cheeky Look at Butts in Art by Mark Small and Jack Shoulder.

What do Hieronymus Bosch, the Roman cult of Antinous, and the peach emoji all have in common? But of course, butts, of course!

Based on the eponymous viral Twitter account, and divided into six categories of keisters, Museum Bums takes you on a whirlwind tour of the finest rear ends in museums around the world. Heritage scholars and art educators Mark small and Jack Shoulder pair illuminating social commentary, historical context, and lively captions with over 150 depictions of tasteful-and sometimes cheeky- bums in art. From an angel slyly copping a feel in a sixteenth-century triptych, to a 25,000-year-old bodacious Venus, to Cezanne's dreamy booty-ful bathers, this ass-ortment of artistic behinds is both a celebration and study of the bounty of beautiful bums and their everlasting impressions.
