The Blue Boy - Gainsborough
The Blue Boy
-- Thomas Gainsborough (1727 - 1788)

The number of artists whose names are universally known, who were lovers of male youth, seems sometimes to outnumber those who weren't.  These range from the numerous ancient artists carrying on the pederastic or similar traditions of their cultures, to rennaissance artists (for example, Boticelli, da Vinci and Michelangelo) who, in their own way, revived the classical artistic and pederastic traditions in tandem, to 18th and 19th century artists of middle-class life (Tuke) and democracy (Eakins), to pioneers of photography (Eakins and von Gloedin) to 20th century photographers and filmmakers who if not lovers of male youth are certainly admirers of their personality and form (Larry Clark, Gus Van Sandt).

The articles linked here review works from some of these great artists as well as those lesser known -- and not only artists known or believed to have loved boys or been loved as boys, but also those who aptly capture the personalities of boys and their lovers in visual media.  In time, this section will expand, with more articles both new and old.  Feel free to help us with this effort.
