Minor White's use of truncated torsos and images of male nudes with the head cropped out have been viewed by some critics and art historians as indicative of his lifelong failure to deal with his own homosexuality.  White remained deeply closeted until his 1976 death despite having been a key player in both artistic and academic circles where gays were generally tolerated. This is another work  featuring Tom Murphy from the 1947-48 series The Temptation of Saint Anthony Is Mirrors.

  1. Lovely cropped image. Sinews natural body hair and inviting us to compare the model's finders with his rather fine half exposed cock head..
