Paul Cadmus

Two artists who were personally attracted to men. Michelangelo draws gym bunnies with female faces (look at the Nudes from the Sistine Chapel). Cadmus draws men.
Cadmus teaches a lesson: you dont need to be Epic to be beautiful and powerful. Mostly a sculptor, Michelangelo impresses me, of course with the beauty of his paintings but more so with the grandeur of his murals. Cadmus keeps it cool and smaller yet strikes me with a subtle beauty, one that the size practiced by Michelangelo fails to do.
Here's from my image collection.
