    • Un très beau livre. Un des premiers maîtres de l'art gay aux États Unis. Tous les tableaux connus de Quaintance sont rassemblés


    • I wasn't familiar with George Quaintance and only stumbled upon him while researching early American gay literature. After reading part of his biography I was intrigued with the dichotomy between his upbringing and his flamboyant tendencies. It is almost as though the conventional gender roles of the time, perhaps exaggerated through the lens of a country boy in Virginia, are translated in his depiction of strong, virile men-- many with softer, almost submissive figures uniformly focused on th [...]

    • Giant book with high quality pictures. Very striking to leave opened on a coffee table (assuming your house guests aren't prude). I own dozens of art books and this is easily one of the best quality.
