I featured a video of the magnificent art of Paul Cadmus on my youtube channel but this one, by Augusto Mariante, is an exquisite tribute to this exceptional American artist.  It deserves way more hits!  Pass it along, but be careful because it could cause trouble in a prudish workplace. [Maybe NSFW]

Paul Cadmus was a phenomenal artist.

As I understand it, he only made 6 or 7 paintings a years, and every one was already bought out before it was shown. So I don't know if he even had gallery openings.

His work had a very high price tag, and graced the walls of a rich elite clientele who were "in" on the true nature of the subject matter.

This was back in the late forties and early fifties when the word "homosexual" was never even whispered in polite conversation.

Stunning, Gloria. The beauty of the male body is extraordinary. This was a delight to view, as usual, and we owe you a debt of gratitude for continuing to ferret out the best.

As only a girl from Brooklyn can say, I totally love youse guys. :)
