Images from Masculine / Masculine, the Musée d'Orsay's New Exhibit Exploring the Male Nude

by Max Kessler

It's no surprise that we appreciate a good bulge and were excited when we heard that Paris' Musée d'Orsay has a new exhibit exploring the male nude throughout time. Called Masculine / Masculine: The Nude Man in Art from 1800 to the present day, the show takes you through the male nude from its 17th century Academic roots through modern iterations in photographs, sculptures and oil paintings. Masculine / Masculine opened this week and will be at Musée d'Orsay until January 2nd, so if you're in the Paris area make sure to check it out. Images from the exhibit, below.
