David Hamilton found dead amid allegations of historical rapeUploader: Daijar 3 month ago Subscribe 2
Works by Cassatt, Donatello, Munch, Parrish, Balthus, Kara Walker, Degas, Amy Crehore, Bouguereau, etc prove that it is not categorically impossible to create meritorious works of visual art --even masterpieces-- that address the subject of sexual awakening or contain child or adolescent nudity. In the past, Adolfo has captured the attention of our readership with his warm and glowing presentation of feminine beauty. To hear these allegations after so many years has passed I really have to wonder why do these women that alleged to have been raped or abused open up now? I'd never heard of this guy or this story. That put aside, I always thought Hamilton was a talented artist who put great thought and care into his works and never had a problem with the subject matter.
