Pierre Passebon, Florent Barbarossa


From 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 of representation of the naked male body have fascinated the collector Pierre Passebon for decades. This new volume in the “Obsession” series directed by Pierre Passebon celebrates a powerful, revolutionary and sometimes controversial selection of artworks of the male nude from his 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.
