  1. Monsieur Negri is certainly built well. I've seen a couple other pictures of him that don't show off the musculature so well. Is the yellow tone due to aging?

    1. Probably aging as it does not look like an intentional sepia tint.

  2. Now you really are spoiling me! I've enthused about Jean-Marie Negri a number of times so it's great to see a new (to me) photo of him. What a body ... and he was a real looker too. Thanks to Brian E for sending this gem.

  3. I am now wondering whether his surname needs to have an 'S' added to it. In some of the captions of photos I have for him the surname is spelt: Négris. The fact that in the French pronunciation, the terminal 's' would be silent, may have led to confusion in a non-French speaking context. He is named Mr. France Jr. in one photo's caption and Mr. Europe Jr. in another.

    1. I noticed the different spellings, too, Brian. I think your explanation of it is valid, and I seem to recall that it wasn't at all unusual for these great models to hold multiple titles.
