Attributed to a Brahman who might have written it in the 4th century of our era, the Kama-Sutra makes up one of the major texts of medieval Hinduism and is not a pornographic book, as it is often described in the Western world.

Exhibition Album, Bilingual edition, The Kama-Sutra, spirituality and erotism in Indian Art, at the Pinacotheque of Paris (from October 2, 2014 to January 11, 2015).
The Kama-Sutra is divided up into seven sections (adhikarana): society and social concepts, sexual union, as regards the spouse, as regards extra-marital relationships, as regards courtesans, as regards the arts of seduction.
Around 330 outstanding works including those of Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar, maharana of Udaipur and the remarkable collection of Beroze and Michel Sabatier - sculptures, paintings, miniatures, objects of daily life, “pillow books”, illustrated works that were offered to the newlyweds until the 19th century, in order to give them an erotic education-, organized according to the seven sections of the Kama-Sutra, will be exhibited in the Pinacothèque de Paris.
The exhibition will explain the erotic aesthetics specific to the erotic aesthetics of Indian cultural life and to Hinduism. It will also attempt to understand why the Western world casts such a deformed look on that very unusual book.
