In this issue there is an informative article on the influence of the mythological creature Ganymede on artists form the beginning of art to the present. There is also a well-researched discussion of the history of sculpture (Greek and Roman Sculpture: An Appreciation, a Brief Survey, and the Legacy) that offers fourteen pages of image of famous and not so famous sculptures from the past. And as always there is a reference catalogue posted in the back that shows where the reader can see more of each of the artists discussed n this issue and in past issues. As expected, this Journal is now in the libraries and bookstores of art schools across the nation and in Europe and Asia. Grady Harp, July 12
There are five artists whose work is highlighted in depth; and they are interviewed as well. What these artists have to say for themselves is incredible and highly intelligent! Look for captivating interviews with David Powers; Mark Horst; the remarkably creative Joshua Meyer; Eric Itschert and Syed Ali Arif. There's even more including a very well written essay entitled "Greek and Roman Sculpture: An Appreciation, A Brief Survey, and the Legacy" by art historian Grady Harp and a fascinating piece on Ganymede which has inspired so many artists over centuries of time. There are even acknowledgements of art available in galleries such as The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, which is the first museum ever to concentrate solely on gay and lesbian art as well as The Lizardi/Harp Gallery. There is a beautiful portrait from 100 Artists of the Male Figure: A Contemporary Anthology of Painting, Drawing and Sculpture by E. Gibbons with an introduction by Grady Harp and we also get an extensive listing of artists (with their websites) who have dedicated 50% or more of their work to the male figure. Wonderful!
I highly recommend this book for any serious collector of fine art especially those who particularly admire and appreciate the male figure. As always, this edition of The Art of Man doesn't disappoint!
