i curated a small show at the whitney museum in the summer of 1996 entitled "Paul Cadmus: The Sailor Trilogy" that reunited Cadmus' three marvelously satirical sailor paintings from the 1930s--Shore Leave, The Fleet's In!, and Sailors and Floosies. I'm wondering, first, if anyone out there saw it and second, how others think Cadmus' place in gay history and culture might best be understood. What has Cadmus's work meant to you or other gay men you know? By the way, I think Steven Jenkins did a marvelous job of curating this virtual exhibition and only hope that a full-scale museum retrospective of cadmus' work will follow soon.
