The Art of Man: Fine Art of the Male Form Quarterly Journal, Vol. 4
Theartofman.net becomes a reality! This
quarterly seeks to bring balance to a genre of art that overwhelmingly favors
the female figure. We feature artists that are courageous enough to focus on the
male figure as a significant portion of their portfolio. We bring you in-depth
interviews into their thought processes, choices, struggles and creativity in a
way no book on the subject can; a buffet for the connoisseur of figurative art.
This issue features the artwork of Bob Gherardi (cover) James Childs (Back
Cover) Grant A. Anderson, Richard Wallace, and Miriam Schulman. The featured
gallery interview is MooiMan Gallery of Holland/Netherlands by David Jarrett.
The historical spotlight falls on Thomas Eakins with an article by Grady Harp.
If you ever wanted to know what it is like to work with nude models, an
insider's look is included from an artist's perspective. The edition ends with
our artist's directory of over 125 artists that work with the classical male
figure in fine art today.
Le Brocquy, Louis (1916- ) - 1951 A
Family (The National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin)
Oil on canvas 147 x 185 cm. Irish painter and
decorative artist. His sister, Melanie le Brocquy (b 1919), was a distinguished
sculptor. In 1934 he joined the family business and studied chemistry at Trinity
College and teaching himself to paint. He first exhibited at the Royal Hibernian
Academy in 1937 and from 1938 spent two years studying Old Master paintings at
the National Gallery, London, the Louvre, the Prado, and in Venice and Geneva.
There's something reverant and poetic about the entire body of work, as is
evidenced by le Brocquy's frequent portraits of fellow Irish greats such as
Oscar Wilde, WB Yeats and Samuel Beckett. Yet le Brocquy's poetry is always
rigorously painterly and visual. He never falls off into literary illustration
or compositional melodrama. As Francis Bacon once remarked, le Brocquy continues
to be "obsessed by figuration outside and on the other side of illustration".
And there is certainly a thematic otherness haunting all of his painterly and
graphic work, whether it be the psychologically incisive portraits, ritualized
figure gatherings, lyrical still-lifes or the long series of mist-drenched

In the twenty-six-year history of Award Films,
no film has generated more public interest, or controversy, than THE GENESIS
CHILDREN. The legend began after the film's initial theatrical release was cut
short by oil tycoon/producer Billy Byars, who felt his creation was being
misunderstood. But perhaps confusion was always his intention, since the
original title for this art house hot-potato was "?." After a long search Award
Films was able to resurrect the film onto video so that film buffs can once
again ponder the mysteries of this visually stunning underground cinema
