Before Rockwell, a Gay Artist Defined the Perfect American Male by Hunter Oatman-Stanford

Before Rockwell, a Gay Artist Defined the Perfect American Male by Hunter Oatman-Stanford | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Thanks to J.C. Leyendecker, we all know that sex sells. 

  You might not recognize his name, but a hundred years ago the American public celebrated his images of sleek muscle-men, whose glistening homo-eroticism adorned endless magazine covers. Rockwell was just an 11-year old kid when Leyendecker created the legendary “Arrow Collar Man,” one of America’s first recognizable sex symbols.    To top things off, Leyendecker’s boys were often modeled after his lover and lifetime companion, Charles Beach, making their secret romance a front-page feature across the U.S.

Curate Your Art Collection with Pictify

Curate Your Art Collection with Pictify | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Pictify is a new web-based curation service which allows you to put together, publish and share, visual art collection of any kind.

 

This is a great tool for those in love with art, as much as for those who need to organize, present and promote artists' work.

 

At Pictify, most curated collections are built around paintings, sculptures, photography and drawings created by users who are passionate about a specific artist, genre or historical time. 

 

But Pictify offers a tremendous opportunity to museums and art gallery owners, managers and curators, as it offers them an easy way to showcase their existing collections as well as upcoming ones.

 

From the official site: "As a gallery or museum you can feature your artists and the works in your collection on Pictify. You can show individual art works, preview an upcoming exhibition, and organise works in albums by artist or medium."

 

P.S.: Just like Kullect.com, Pictify is a specialized content curation service catering to a specific type of content and user interested in art. Much less generic than Pinterest, and much more focused on a specific area.

 

Expect more special-interest curation sites to emerge soon in other fields.


The service is free to use.

Getting Started: http://pictify.com/about/getting-started/  ;

Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943 – Plog Photo Blog

Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943 – Plog Photo Blog | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

"These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations. The photographs are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color."

Asil Note: It's amazing how color pulls these images into such sharp relief, making them more immediate and yet so clearly images of the (now) distant past.
