Paul Cadmus (December 17, 1904 – December 12, 1999)

Paul Cadmus was an American artist. Cadmus's sister, Fidelma, was the wife of philanthropist and arts patron Lincoln Kirstein. He is best known for his paintings and drawings of nude male figures. His works combined elements of eroticism and social critique to produce a style often called magic realism. He painted with egg tempera. He worked in commercial illustration as well, but Jared French, another tempera artist who befriended him and became his lover for a time, convinced him to devote himself completely to fine art. For a period, they worked together with French’s wife as well, calling themselves PaJaMa (Paul + Jared + Margaret). Jon Andersson, a former cabaret singer, who became Paul Cadmus's longtime companion of 35 years, was a subject of many of his works. The two met on a pier on Nantucket in 1964, when Andersson was twenty-seven and Cadmus was fifty-nine. "I never wanted to be with anyone else", Cadmus remarked. Thirty-six years later, at sixty-three and ninety-five, when Paul died, they were still together. Jon can be seen in the David Sutherland 1986 PBS Documentary about Paul Cadmus entitled Paul Cadmus, Enfant Terrible at 80.
