The recurrent pose 30


The previous post in this series showed Flandrin’s Jeune Homme Assis au Bord de la Mer (1836) being used as a book cover illustration and here it is again, confirming once again how easily the painting fits the world of homoerotica whatever the original intention of the artist. I hadn’t come across this book before but it looks like it may be worth buying despite the mixed reviews.


And a recent posting from this Flickr user is another deliberate imitation of Flandrin’s pose.
