    I can't put it down

    Every time I come back to this volume I have a renewed since of discovery. The images are beautiful and varied and present the male body as graceful, rugged, erotic and poetic. The scope and range of subject matter surpassed my wildest expectations. What a jewel. I would recommend this book for anyone who can appreciate the male nude and loves looking at it.

    David Leddick Continues His Important Art Survey of the Male Nude

    Few writers have so consistently illuminated the history of the controversy of the male nude in art as David Leddick. For more than ten years Leddick has not only written excellent novels and biographies and monographs of fascinating individual artists, but he has also educated the public with his very fine art books combining photography with all forms of visual art dealing with the changing appreciation and acceptance of the male nude. In 1997 he introduced NAKED MEN: PIONEERING MALE NUDES 1935 - 1955, in 2000 he published NAKED MEN TOO: LIBERATING THE MALE NUDE 1950 - 2000, in 2001 he released MALE NUDE NOW: NEW VISIONS FOR THE 21st CENTURY, and now in 2008 he culminates his work with this excellent book THE NUDE MALE: 21st CENTURY VISIONS. <BR/><BR/>After an apt and brief introduction in which he suggests that both the rise of photography as an art form and the rise of Feminism allowed the male nude to gain popularity and acceptance in art, Leddick presents 140 established and emerging artists, in alphabetical order, with ample examples of each artist's contribution to the theme of the book. His panorama of artists is global and includes such luminaries as Duane Michaels, Don Bachardy, Chuck Close, David Hockney, John Currin, Reed Massengill, Kobi Israel, Wes Hempel, Jack Balas, Lucian Freud, Dimitris Yeros, Nan Golden, Arthur Tress, Wolfgan Tillmans, Alexis Rodriguez-Duarte, Joe Oppedisano, Michael Leonard, Matthias Herrmann, and Greg Gorman - to name but a few. The images are accompanied by a brief but informative biographical statement about the artist displayed, and the design of the book by Jennifer Laino is a work of art in itself. <BR/><BR/>Viewing this book is informative to both the art student and the art public in general, entertaining for the amount of humor it contains, and provocative. It is certainly well within the high standard of Leddick's previous books - a handsome volume of artistic significance. Grady Harp
