Men In The Cities

Sunday, July 10, 2011 · 3 Comments

Ever wonder where this image from the band Cults came from?

I did until I came across Robert Longo’s series Men In The Cities below. The series is in charcoal and graphite on paper and spans from 1979- 1987. Longo is a big-time artist: his work is in MOMA, the Guggenheim, LACMA… you name it.

Pretty rad, huh?

It’s also amusing to see how little work attire has changed in the past 30 years.

All images from the artist’s website. The first two drawings are in the artist’s collection, the third is in the collection of  Jane Holzer and the fourth in the collection of Sherry and Alan Koppel.

    That is so cool…I had no idea. And I was thinking the same thing about the clothes, I’m very grateful that I don’t have to wear a skirt suit to work!
