Circa 1950s Print by Alexander Canedo Semi Male Nude Homoerotic

Alexander Canedo, Mex-American artist (1902-1978)

“.....In 1950, Walter Foster published an art instruction book titled How Cañedo Draws the Figure, it remained in print for five years.
Cañedo permanently relocated to California, dividing his time between San Francisco and Los Angeles, with frequent painting trips to the Monterey area. His work tended to be formally similar, with nude figures set in improbable, alien or abstracted landscapes, or featured natural objects such as seashells floating in such settings. During this time, Cañedo also produced many overtly homoerotic artworks for private collectors which were too suggestive to be exhibited in galleries.”
