cupid-boy:

by JC Leyendecker.

His paintings of ideal men became the standard of beauty for men at the time. Hell, it still is for me. Broad shoulders, narrow hips, the perfect triangular beauty of a male form complimented with soft lips and deep, sometimes flirtatious sometimes longing eyes. A painting that tells more about the painter than the painting itself.

Soldiers all; portraits and sketches of the men of the A. E. F. (1920)

These are few of the portraits from the book. 

All portraits are accompanied by various descriptions of the soldiers portrayed, including descriptions of the soldier’s activities and personality, his experiences at war, his rank, assignment, birthday, when he was deployed, promotions, and whatever else deemed relevant.
