1894 MALE NUDE PORTRAIT SANDOW GAY INT.
1894 MALE NUDE PORTRAIT SANDOW GAY INT.
This photograph shows Eugen Sandow, nude, except for fig leaf, in 1894 studio portrait. Born in Prussia (now part of Germany) in 1867, Sandow began his career as a sideshow "strongman". Early in life, and with the help of showman Florenz Ziegfeld, Sandow decided it wasn't enough to simply demonstrate his strength, but to actually display his muscular physique as though it were a work of art. He soon made his "Muscle Displays" the main feature of his stage show. As an interesting side note, the most prestigious prize in professional bodybuilding today is the Mr. Olympia contest. The trophy awarded is a statue of Eugene Sandow.
