The Masculine Observed
Steven Law and Donald Stroud are guided by ideas about beauty, hoping to bring pleasure to others. They constantly strive to improve the quality of their inventory and their understanding of works in their keeping.
The Masculine Observed, their focus for MDNY2018, affords an examination of the male form and character through time. Various drawings depict men as creative, courageous, brutal, loyal, honorable, brave, reliable, fierce, committed, proud, revered, saintly, ascetic, tempted, tired, grotesque, flawed, and repentant.
Viewers can expect to see drawings by or attributed to Fontebasso, Kubler, LeClerc, Isabey, Foggini, Gros, B. Fabritius, Novelli, Milani, Guerra, Bocanegra, and others still demanding time for fuller understanding.
