Inside Mexico City’s Nude Male Art Exhibit

Mexico City’s National Museum of Art has brought together some of the world’s most explicit works of art featuring the male nude for an exhibit titled, El Hombre Al Desnudo.
The exhibit is a collaboration with Paris’ famed art insitution, Musée d’Orsay, and it includes nude male art dating back to the 19th century.

“Agustin Arteaga, who curated the exhibition, worked to provide an opportunity to show the historical development of the nude as an artistic subject: from the classical figure through the subversive twentieth century,” wrote Jeffrey James Keyes on GayCities.

El Hombre Al Desnudo features works from French painter Henri Camille Danger, Mexican photographer Luis Marquez-Janitzio, Mexican painter Javier de la Garza and American photographer Duane Michals, whose black and white photo “The Most Beautiful Part of a Man’s Body” is, coincidentally, one of my favorites.
