100 Artists of the Male Figure: A Contemporary Anthology of Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture

Coming out end of the month, 100 Artists of the Male Figure collects many of the artists I have already featured here on my LiveJournal, and many more.

Images of the classical female figure are more prevalent in the contemporary figurative art world, as the nude male has been shunned as too potent or treated as a sex symbol. This book bravely showcases works by male and female artists from around the world that focus on this classic subject. Painting, drawings, and sculptures display broad and varied styles, including portraiture, studies, Pop Art, abstract, and photorealism. Read each artist's approach to the male figure through candid personal statements. Nearly 400 works capture masculine beauty in many styles. This resource brings balance to the figurative art world and is an ideal reference for artists, curators, dealers, students, and collectors.

They collected artists from all over the United States from New York to Hawaii, artists from Canada, Mexico, China, Iran, Australia, Netherlands, England, Scotland, France, Denmark, Germany, Japan and Spain that will be represented in this first volume.

The editor, E. Gibbons, continues to seek out artists and welcomes links to their pages so that he can add them to his wish-list for volume 2 and other projects he has planned; like a quarterly magazine/journal that would feature artists in depth, tie in to a historical artist and more.
