Gay 101: The Art of George Quaintance

George Quaintance (June 3, 1902 – November 8, 1957) was an American artist famous for his “idealized, strongly homoerotic” depictions of men in physique magazines. Several of his artworks depicted men of Mexican and Indian ethnicities, which has been described as part of the “closeting” of “physique art”, as it pretended physique art had anthropological or academic motives. His artworks also depicted idealized Wild West settings. His artwork has been said to establish the “macho stud” stereotype who was also homosexual.
