Male Nude Studies

An art student for most of my early life, study of the nude started in 10th grade at the HS of Music & Art in NYC. No one in my world thought it unusual to be spending a lot of time with naked people. Several teachers had profound influence in this area: Matthew Feinman at Music & Art, Théo Stavropolous at Lehman College; Robert Beverly Hale at the Art Student's League, Eliot Goldfinger & Randy Melick at NY Academy of Art. But most influential was Théo. Homage to them all, here on this board.
