Nude in Public: Sascha Schneider, Homoeroticism and the Male Form circa 1900
Curated by Jonathan David Katz
At the beginning of the 20th Century, Sascha Schneider, German painter, sculptor, and one of the first self-consciously gay artists, was elevated to a prestigious post at a German university and was one of the most well-known and well-respected public artists of his time. Only a generation later, he was largely relegated to obscurity.
This first US exhibition examines not only Schneider's art, but the strange cultural phenomenon that caused his dramatic rise and fall.
