Painted Men in Britain, 1868-1918: Royal Academicians and Masculinities
Painted Men in Britain, 1868-1918 analyzes transgressions of gender and sexuality as represented in paintings by Leighton, Sargent, Tuke and their contemporaries in the Royal Academy. The book argues against the misconception of British academic art as merely reactionary and even blind to the dynamism of its own time; instead, this art is shown to engage with broader social attitudes and contemporary sexual debates.
