In this pioneering and compelling book, Abigail Solomon-Godeau shows that the masculine ideal, whether in the guise of martial, virile heroes or languishing, disempowered youths, raises important questions about the fashioning of masculinity itself. Examining the different forms of ideal manhood in relation to the cataclysms of the French Revolution and to international Neoclassicism, she explores how and why the beautiful male body dominated the visual.

These are in the form of standing waves, and their coefficient functions are linear combinations of the products of the cubic harmonics of a suitable type and the spherical Bessel functions. Properties of the solutions obtained were examined. Numerical calculations were made for four irreducible representations of the point group.

Abigail Solomon-Godeau is clearly a bright and well researched scholar. She takes on the strange task of examining the evolving appearance of the male nude from virile to fey in paintings at the close of the 18th century and into the 19th century and finds in this path of thinking some fascinating insights into the core of feminism. Her premises are sound, her arguments are strong. She has devoted much time and skill into opening the door on a problem that continues to vex us - why are we so terrified to paint the frontal male nude now? Her book slowly unfolds a well documented, well illustrated exploration of why the French Revolution and its aftermath gave impetus to the feminist movement and why, in turn, the male nudes in the paintings of the previous centuries were feminized and subsequenty replaced by female nudes.....a situation that persists into 2001. My only reservations with this book is that it reads so slowly, due to the style of writing. As a Doctoral Thesis this might be expected. But for the art reader it is hellish work wading through much of the verbiage. But, stick to it and you will be handsomely rewarded in the end. This is one very bright lady who has added considerably to a festering question in representational art.

I suspect that buried somewhere in these 264 pages of largely unreadable prose is a rather interesting 20 page essay. I'll confess that I gave up trying to find it about halfway through the book. The insights offered simply weren't worth filtering through the difficult writing style. For a wider-ranging and more readable book, I recommend THE NUDE MALE: A NEW PERSPECTIVE by Margaret Walters.
