This ink drawing, as well as the next two (1955.1.7 and 1955.1.8), depict square-shouldered muscle men, nude except for tight briefs and executed in the same heavily shaded manner. Inspiration for these drawings probably derives from the male figure in a photograph Hartley took of a shirtless man in long pants, in the same pose—showing off his muscular arms held akimbo, hands on hips, and V-shaped torso.
