Artwork Khrushchev Probably Would Not Have Liked 1

Inspired by my earlier post about Khruschev's distaste for modern art, I am moved to launch this occasional series about modern art that was made prior to his premiership (1958) that would have likely offended him. I will focus on less-famous works.

If this is not an esoteric thread, I'm not sure what is!

In any case, we start with "Wrestler," 1929, by Dudley Talcott.

I'm not really interested in abstract art but this one captures the subject quite nicely, IMO.

Except that, with that anabolic body, certain *ahem* parts are way too large.

This Wrestler would fit right into one of those sci-fi movies that's so bad, it's good. Maybe with a porn sub-plot. That should be a great combo.

Richard, you're not supposed to look at those things!

It's allowed if it's art...
