He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

Eye Candy Bonus: J.C. Leyendecker on Tumblr

Posted by Charley Parker at 11:55 pm

 J.C. Leyendecker
A collection of J.C. Leyendecker goodies on Tumblr.

Contains a couple of non-Leyendecker items, but as of this writing, basically 9 pages of Golden Age of Illustration Eye Candy and counting.

See my last post on J.C. Leyendecker for links to even more posts and lots of image resources.

Is there such a thing as too much J.C. Leyendecker?

I don’t think so.

    I’ve been compiling another Tumblr with the best examples I can find of homoerotic imagery in Leyendecker’s work. No homophobia or offense is meant! In fact, I think this aspect of Leyendecker’s life and the influence it had on his work has been woefully neglected. There are lots of instances in Leyendecker’s work of men casting each other rather heavy glances at one another, often looking right past their female companions!

    Appreciation, celebration and even idolization of the male form is influenced by sexuality, and Leyendecker is one of the few great and well-known artists to objectify men rather than (or in addition to) women. I think this influence on his work is worth celebrating, as well as poking a little bit of fun at.

    Thanks for the link. I hope there is not only images from the known books :-)
