William MacLane catalog Q
One of the long-stated reasons for producing physique photographs was to provide an aid for artists wishing to have model resources for their art. The then-famous (and now nearly-forgotten) William MacLane took this source to heart as witnessed by three of his paintings offered in Catalog Q. The figure on the left in #99-Leisure is a classic pose by Glenn Bishop, the prone figure in #100-Sun Worship is Ed Fury by Bruce of LA and the inspiration for #102-The Studio is a photo of Matt Carroll by John Palatinus.
