A Triography of George Platt Lynes, Paul Cadmus, Lincoln Kirstein, and Their Circle
Photographer George Platt Lynes, painter Paul Cadmus, and critic Lincoln Kirstein played a major role in creating the institutions of the American art world from the late 1920s to the early 1950s. The three created a remarkable world of gay aesthetics and desire in art with the help of their overlapping circle of friends, lovers, and collaborators.
A teenager from the Midwest goes to New York to live temporarily with his uncle and aunt, both high-powered advertising executives. He in no way envisions the major theater career that will be his later. Nor do the people he meets particularly the Army veteran who has just returned from military service to the exclusive community north of New York…
Through hours of conversation with surviving members with their circle and unprecedented access to papers, journals, and previously unreleased photos, David Leddick has resurrected the influences of this now-vanished art world along with the lives and loves of all three artists in this groundbreaking biography.
