SISSYDUDE LOVES: THE WORK of EUGÈNE FREDRIK JANSSON, SWEDISH PAINTER (1862-1915) / via Chris M.

HOMO HISTORY: Eugene Jansson was born in Stockholm in 1862 and spent the first half of his career as an accomplished landscape painter. He was famous for his Munch inspired nighttime landscapes, featuring gorgeous shades of blue. These works were highly sought after and his career was flourishing, but Jansson was exhausted and had lost interest in landscapes. He decided to change the direction of his work and it would be a drastic change. Jansson met his muse and lover, Knut Nyman, while at the Navy Bath-house in Stockholm. The Naval bath-house, and it’s many handsome young members, would become the inspiration for the second half of Jansson’s career as a painter. His love of men and his passion for painting suddenly merged with his new works. His painting of his lover Knut, “Naken Yngling” (Nude Youth) was exhibited 1907.

Jansson and Knut lived an isolated life for many years while he worked on his new series of paintings. Jansson’s self portrait in the bath-house is oddly revealing for a man who lived in a society where he wasn’t allowed to be openly gay. Jansson and Knut shared a house together, next to his painting studio, until 1912. Jansson painted 4 monumental works set in a bathhouse, as well as nude athletes, until he died cerebral hemorrhage in 1915. After Jansson’s death, his brother (who was also gay) destroyed most of the artist’s letters and papers. This was most likely done to avoid a scandal since homosexuality was illegal in Sweden until 1944, Until very recently, art historians have ignored Jansson’s homosexuality despite the obvious homo-erotic nature of his work.

and this (unrelated) FUN FACT:

From the 1890s to the 1930s, men who swam at the YMCA did so in the nude, apparently wool swimsuits (the fashion of the time) clogged up the pool filters.

SISSYDUDE LOVES: THE SIMPLY LOVELY PAINTINGS & ILLUSTRATIONS of GERDA WEGENER.

Just watched The Danish Girl the other night… loved the costume design/ art direction… the movie, not so much. Beautiful to look at but the story didn’t draw me in… and the wigs got worse as it went on. But it made me want to look at the art of Gerda Wegener. Goddess, she was soooooo good! Take a look…

PAINTINGS of WILLIAM BRUCE ELLIS RANKEN (1881- 1941)

195ea5eaaccb5e85475a9c7292eb612e

THE MODERNIST JOURNALS PROJECT: From: Wendy and Gordon Hawksley: William Bruce Ellis Ranken was born in Edinburgh in 1881, the second son of Robert Burt Ranken, a prosperous lawyer, and his wife Mary. He was educated at Eton and The Slade School of Art under Henry Tonks. He had his first one man exhibition at the Carfax Gallery, London in 1904, a gallery much favoured by Sargent at that time. Moving in the circles of Edwardian aesthetes, it is known that he was well acquainted with Sargent by 1908 and Wilfrid Gabriel de Glehn.

WILLIAM-BRUCE-ELLIS-RANKEN--1881-1941-_pormg_1946_223_large

By 1914 he was living at 14 Cheltenham Terrace, Chelsea, a couple of minutes walk away from Sargent’s studio in Tite Street. Unable to serve in the First World War due the effects of childhood polio, he subsequently went to America on a commission through Sargent. He had his first one man exhibition there in January 1916 at the Doll & Richards Gallery, Boston. Sargent introduced him to Isabella Stewart Gardner who acquired his watercolour ‘In a Turkish Garden’. Later that same year he had a one man exhibition at the Galleries of M Knoedler & Co in New York and by this time had had commissions by other prominent Americans such as the Vanderbilts, Whitneys and Havemeyers, probably due to introductions effected by Sargent.

SPUNK by Antonio Da Silva

SPUNK is an experimental documentary where reality and virtual reality blend into a surrealistic sexual collage. 36 minutes long, it showcases digital sex with webcams, mobile phones and the fantasies the participants live through the digital media.

SPUNK_By_-Antonio_Da_Silva_xxx02

SPUNK_By_-Antonio_Da_Silva_06_00000

SPUNK has two parts. In the first it references the internet aesthetics and online gay cruising through time. In the second it transports the viewer into a fantasy world. In those virtual settings horny men openly demonstrate their cyber sexuality.

SISSYDUDE LOVES: @ BCALLA FW15/ COLBY DOES NEW YORK @ COLBY DOES AMERICA

Bcalla_FW15_00

Bcalla_FW15_03

BCALLA’s video presentation is a collaboration with Colby Keller. The FW15 video, directed by Special Agent Ferretti with set design by Michael Burk, employs 1990s cartoon imagery to transport the players (CockyBoys team) to a psychedelic sphere where sex is a colorful and exuberant experiment, but more importantly, sex is funny. Brooklyn nightlife is the glue and sweat that holds the BCALLA FW15 collection together. A familiar venue for BCALLA, the electric sandbox with no rules and no gender embraces the pop sexuality of a media-frenzied and porn-infused underground.

tumblr_njykjcUdKz1qjipi2o5_500

Edited by Drew Bolton with art direction and set design by Michael Burk. The collection is styled with custom head pieces by Love Bailey and features a soundtrack by NEOCAMP.

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE!!! and on COCKYBOYS too!
