Artist/theorist Henry Fuseli (1741-1825) explored body/mind and subject/object dichotomies at the margins of human experience. In a collection of erotic drawings, he depicts objects as emblems of oppression, violence, sexuality and power. My research will consider the ways in which these objects serve as emblems for specific subject/object relations, to better understand how Fuseli’s erotic drawings might be representative of a greater interest in the power of things in late eighteenth and early nineteenth-century Britain.
