New Work: The Chevalier
I have uploaded a new work to my Male Nudes Gallery. It is an exploration of masculinity and homo-eroticism during the baroque era, when the ideal of masculinity was wrapped in brocade and tied with ribbons. Wigs and make-up were worn by both sexes and excess was turned into an artform in its own right. It is a fabulous era for art, architecture and music in particular, there was not a straight line or plain surface in sight.
