Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture by Jonathan D. Katz and David C. Ward 
2010, Hardcover

"Hide/Seek: Difference in Desire in American Portraiture, companion volume to an exhibition of the same name at the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, traces the defining presence of same-sex desire in American portraiture through a seductive selection of more than 150 full-color illustrations, drawings, and portraits from the leading American artists. Arcing from the turn of the twentieth century, through the emergence of the modern gay liberation movement in 1969, the tragedies of the AIDS epidemic, and to the present, Hide/Seek openly considers what has long been suppressed or tacitly ignored, even by the most progressive sectors of our society: the influence of gay and lesbian artists in creating American modernism." from the inside dust jacket
