Anyone who has followed this or my old tumblr blog knows that I have a thing for late 19th and very early 20th Century studio male nudes.  This is my current favorite. probably because it loosely follows a Classical motif and has a naturally well formed model.


  1. This is wonderful. Presumably done as an action pose of an artist model reference for those unable to attend a class. A nicely built fairly mature man with, I think.. a classic Victorian tache. Speaking as a life model I would use the cloth "tourniquet" to stabilise the position of both arms and the head. neat to try..thank you including this one.

    1. Oh, you're quite welcome. I knew you would have a special appreciation of this one, and I was looking forward to your comments.

    2. You know me so well..I'm modelling tomorrow. Planning to use a bandage in a similar pose..

    3. It did several more using the same technique.
