About

Oil on canvas 40 x 30 in. (101.5 x 76 cm) The artist George Quaintance (1902–1957), the Master Painter of the Male Physique, was out in an age when out was not only risky, but largely illegal. He was a vaudeville dancer, coiffeur designer, window dresser, magazine cover artist, photographer, portraitist, and ultimately, the first great physique artist. In 1982, The Voice stated, “Quaintance was gifted with so much drive and artistic talent that he had the ability to transcend the puritanical restrictions of the times and leave us something of his daring imagination in his paintings.”
