This really happened! Iggy Pop posed for a life drawing class organized by artist Jeremy Deller. The resulting studies are gathered here, alongside classical images of masculinity from the Brooklyn Museum. Surprise a music lover in your life with this beautifully produced book from Heni.

On Sunday February 21, 2016, 21 artists from all walks of life gathered at the New York Academy of Art for a special life drawing class with a guest model: American rock legend Iggy Pop. The class was organized by the Brooklyn Museum and conceived by artist Jeremy Deller.
In stark contrast to his kinetic stage persona, Pop methodically posed nude on a different kind of stage, whilst the participating artists—representing New York’s diverse community and ranging from 19 to 70 years of age—depicted his body in the wide-ranging styles expected from a mix of students, practicing artists and retirees.
Iggy Pop Life Class includes drawings by all participating artists, with works ranging from five-minute sketches to studies to presentation drawings—107 works in all. Also included are candid photos of the process alongside comparative works from the Brooklyn Museum’s collections. The book features an introduction by Deller, an interview with Pop about his rationale for participating in this project and an essay on the practice of life drawing in art history and the studio.

Iggy Pop Life Class

Iggy Pop Life Class

It's true. Iggy Pop Life Class opens tomorrow at the Brooklyn Museum. The result of a one-day nude life drawing class at the New York Academy of Art, for which Pop was the unexpected model, the project was the brainchild of artist Jeremy Deller, who writes, in the accompanying monograph, "Even though his body has been photographed and reproduced in print and online millions of times, I felt it could only be properly understood and appreciated by being drawn—a process in which you give the subject the attention it deserves. I am the first to admit there is a degree of absurdity in the idea of convincing someone, who is known for his dynamic stage presence, to be still for four hours." continue to blog
