Man to Man: An Obsession

A celebration of the masculine body through an astonishing private collection of photographs, paintings, sculpture, ceramics, and drawings.

From the idealized nude heroes of ancient Greece to the confrontational frontal nudes of the 1970s and the intimate and sensual photorealist nudes painted by French artist Jacques Sultana, the infinite possibilities to represent the naked male body have fascinated collector Pierre Passebon for decades.
This new volume in The Pierre Passebon Collection series celebrates a powerful, revolutionary, and sometimes controversial selection of artworks depicting the male nude from Passebon’s outstanding personal collection of paintings, sculpture, photography, ceramics, and drawings, challenging taboos surrounding male eroticism and inviting the reader to reassess notions of male identity and normative views of the human body.
