The Most Beautiful Man...

Life Magazine, Oct. 11, 1937
from the text below, "One of the publicity stunts advertising the Paris Exposition was a contest for "The Most Beautiful Man in Europe"..."Others, such as the man in the middle, used ochre or iodine solution to achieve a red Indian skin."

Iodine mixed with oil of some sort, no doubt, all the better to highlight the musculature.
