A Beautiful Book 3 Dec. 2013
By H. F. Corbin - Published on Amazon.com
This catalogue that accompanies the exhibit of Masculin/masculin: the Nude Male in Art from 1800 to the Present Day consisting of paintings, photographs and sculpture at the famous Musee d'Orsay from September 24, 2013 to January 2, 2014 is a joy to behold. Consisting of 300 pages of beautifully reproduced artwork, it certainly in this case-- unless you are fluent in French-- has to stand for the proposition that a picture is worth a thousand words since neither English nor German nor Spanish is written here.

Such a collection of the male nude surely has never been seen before in one place. The work covers-- or should I say uncovers-- many of the usual suspects with a surprise or two-- at least for me-- showing up. There are paintings or drawings by Jacques-Louis David, Edward Burne-Jones (a favorite artist of mine whom I was happy to see included), Picasso of course, Paul Cadmus, David Hockney, at least a half dozen by Egon Schiele, Francis Bacon, William Blake, Edvard Munch, Paul Cezanne, several by Jean Cocteau, Andy Warhol et al. And many of the major photographers,-- my primary interest,--of the male are included: Duane Michals, Frank Eugene Smith, George Hoyningen-Huene, Herbert List, Robert Mapplethorpe, and I counted at least six photographs by George Platt Lynes. Richard Avedon's photo of Andy Warhol and Members of the Factory is here. Five of those gorgeous color photographs by Pierre & Gilles are here as well. An outrageous David LaChapelle (pp. 216-217) is one of my favorites as are the three classic profile poses of the seated nude male with his elbows oh his knees and his head between his arms: Mapplethorpe's shot of the African American male "Ajitto", one by Wilhelm von Gloeden of a Sicilian youth and probably the most famous of the three, the painting by Hippolyte Flandrin that I once spent many hours searching for in the Louve to no avail.

Many of these artists of course have drawn their inspiration from mythology and the Old and New Testaments. We have Christs on the Cross, a Ulysses, a Paris, an Atlas; but St. Sebastian is the winner, showing up again and again.

The three biggest surprises for me, are all photographs: one by Bob Mizer, a portrait of the very young, naked-- at least as much of his chest as we can see-- and fey Truman Capote by Richard Avedon and finally a stunning color photograph of Jennifer Miller mimicking the infamous nude calendar pose of Marilyn Monroe photographed by Zoe Leonard.

A beautiful book indeed.

Je l'aime! 15 April 2014

Perhaps the best collection of the nude male in art that I have come across to date. It is written totally in French, so the reader will be able to appreciate it fully only if s/he has at least an intermediate knowledge of the language.

I don't know any French 23 Jan. 2014
By St. Steve - Published on Amazon.com

but I still loved this elegant and sexy coffee table book. I now wish I had travelled to Paris to see this exhibition. Will it come to the United States? I don't know but this book makes you feel as if you were at the Muse d'Orsay.

A Worthy Exhibit 5 Jun. 2014
By Harold S. Spitzer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This volume of the exhibit in Paris is beautifully photographed and contains interesting commentary. For anyone interested in the male figure in art and photography, this is a most welcome tome.
