Powerfully Beautiful
 

Classically Inspired Living Painters of the Male Figure

Authored by A Firehouse Studio Publication

Powerfullybeautiful.com comes to life, and it simply is is powerfully beautiful.

No other book on the market focuses on the classically painted male figure like this. Bold, beautiful, daring, strong, & sensual barely describe this collection. It is as if we are swept back to a time before conservative critics pushed works like these into a closet.

The male figure is making a quiet comeback, collected silently by the NYC Museum Of Modern Art, Guggenheim & Tate Modern. They know something the rest of the world is about to find out; 2000 years of art history had it right & the masculine model is about to reassume his throne.

These artists have chosen the most difficult route, bypassing the splashes, drips, & eroticism of a push-button culture. They have followed the path of masters before them, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, & Ingres to create images that will last long after we turn to dust.

These are the living masters of a male figurative resurgence.

Foreword by Grady Harp. Afterword by David Jarrett.
