As this valentine’s day winds down to a close, i wanted to share this incredibly perfect photoshop i stumbled across accidentally that combines two leyendecker paintings to make an image the likes leyendecker himself was never able to.⁣

for those of you who don’t know, leyendecker was an extremely popular artist in the early 20th century who drew very fashionable people in rich clothes for advertisements. his arrow collars man was modeled on the man he loved and lived with until his death; that same arrow collars man based on his partner was also probably the influence for jay gatsby in the great gatsby. daisy even mentions this in the novel itself.⁣

making explicitly g*y art from the artwork of one of the most influential g*y artists of the 20th century’s work is certainly something leyendecker would approve of! although he could never show explicitly q***r relationships in his art for print, his men always look better than his women, the focus is always drawn purposefully to the men, and there’s so many works where fit, fashionable, sporty men are looking at one another in a way that reads as “men too aspire to be” for the straight viewer, yet the q***r viewer has always looked at leyendecker and understood that there’s something more going on than just what was on the surface.⁣

because leyendecker’s great love was his model for much of his art, leyendecker was able to put his emotions firmly into his artwork. and it shows, again and again. so i definitely think he would have loved this edit. and just look at some of his other art while you’re here! he was a master of both the masculine and the more flamboyant dandy, and it worked to his advantage in his advertisements. both his definition of the american male and his art set the standard for artists like norman rockwell, who took it and turned it into a softer “post-war americana.”⁣

I love seeing jewelry in old paintings - this is maria louisa of parma, future queen of spain (1764). the pinky ring reminded me of how the fancy orangy pink diamond ring fit me so perfectly (that was from the bourbon parma family last year!)👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼✨

Three latvian forest brothers in the small town of Ērgļi, latvia 1951.

the forest brothers were estonian, latvian, and lithuanian partisans who waged a guerrilla war against soviet rule during the soviet invasion and occupation of the three baltic states during, and after, world war ii.

the red army occupied the independent baltic states in 1940–1941 and, after a period of german occupation, again in 1944–1945. as stalinist repression intensified over the following years, 50,000 residents of these countries used the heavily forested countryside as a natural refuge and base for armed anti-soviet resistance.

resistance units varied in size and composition, ranging from individually operating guerrillas, armed primarily for self-defense, to large and well-organized groups able to engage significant soviet forces in battle.

the conflict between the soviet armed forces and the forest brothers lasted over a decade and cost at least 50,000 lives. estimates for the number of fighters in each country vary. the estimated figures reached 30,000 in lithuania, between 10,000 and 15,000 in latvia and 10,000 in estonia.
