It is normal to exhibit female nude, but that is not the same for the male nude. The first exhibition was in the Leopold Museum in Vienna in 2012.
Male nude from 17th century
Male nudity was from the 17th century used as art training and a key element. See also the drawing of a male nude, made by Henri de Toulouse Lautrec in the Art Academy of Courmon in Paris.
Musée d’Orsay, Paris France presents the exhibition Masculine / Masculine. The exhibition shows you the male nude model with all its sides and meaning in art.
