Male Trouble: A Crisis in Representation

Author(s): Abigail Solomon-Godeau

Social Science

Why did the male nude dominate French art through the French Revolution and then largely disappear? In this pioneering book which challenges received ideas about masculinity and neoclassical visual culture, Abigail Solomon-Godeau shows how the masculine ideal, whether in the guise of virile hero or passive youths, then or now, raises important questions about the fashioning of masculinity itself.
