This book explores the representation of male homosexuality in American art in the first half of the twentieth century. Focusing on the work of Charles Demuth and Marsden Hartley, it uncovers the sexual codes and references in their art and explores how the two men reconciled their production of a self-consciously 'American' art with the representation of their own marginalized status as both homosexuals and avant-garde artists.Homosexuality in the Art of Charles Demuth, Marsden Hartley, and the First American Avant-Garde Jonathan ... a set of utterly traditional distinctions reasserts itself: aquot;At the masculine pole stand the warrior, the blue-jacket, the pugilist, etc., ... Further down the male side of the scale, after the man of adventure and sport, come, successively, the stevedore and his like, the manual laborer, and the merchant.
