1874


The painting style Comerre used in this 1874 academic painting
complements the older model's rugged looks.

  1. I wonder how long his modelling career lasted? Character and fine lived-in physique would be in need.

    1. Having now collected hundreds of these academic works, I can tell you that some of the models appear multiple times. Some of these (which I have posted in comparative mode) were where different students used the same model in the same session from different angles of view. Others were obviously from different sessions, and in a few of those the models look older than in other works. Based on that, I'd say that some of these guys' careers extended well beyond a decade or even two. On the other hand, it's entirely possible that some of the older models were recruited because they were already older.

    3. No problem, David. Look for the next group like this in about 10 days.
