From the 1920's to the 1950's George Quaintance celebrated the ideal male body in drawings, paintings and sculpture. Here are
more examples of his work

R.A. Shultz drew and painted men with massively exaggerated cocks, especially
in his "Giants" and "Black Giants" series, which featured sportsmen and working-men with huge cocks.

The art is extremely brutal. The penises have been concealed, scribbled over or digitally blurred to satisfy Japanese law.
Ironically, Tagame is best known in the west for "My Brother's Husband" a very gentle comic book story.
Here is a sample of his works: Tagame SlideShow
Another Japanese artist is Go Hirano, whose works often feature naked men wrestling, playing rugby, fucking, or all three.
Here is a CanadianGay gallery Go Hirano Art.
In complete contast to Tagame, is Ben Kimura, whose works portray wholesome youths in wholesome activities
such as athletics, team sports, swimming, or serving in the armed forces. They look like the American Dream rather than Japanese. But he also has an x-rated side, which you can see in the second half of this CanadianGay Ben Kimura Slideshow.
