1000 NUDES: A History of Erotic Photography from 1839-1939

H. KOETZLE & UWE SCHEID    Book Number: 76008    Product format: Hardback

This book offers a cross-section of the history of nude photography, ranging from the earliest nude daguerrotypes and ethnographic nude photographs to experimental nude photography. All the pictures shown are taken from the late Uwe Scheid's collection, which was one of the world's largest and most important collections of erotic photography. Uwe Scheid (1944-2000) collected artistic and erotic photographs of nudes, dating mainly from photography's early days and from the 1920s and '30s. They show a joy in experimentation with natural poses and décors, composition and lighting based on intellectual interest. The charm of the photos by Delacroix and Durieu in 1853 is self-evident. Nude girls pose on bicycles, in embraces, lying on draped clothes, across chairs, two servants using carrots on themselves, breasts squeezed, in stockings and furs, athletic beauties and surrealist effects in the 1930s and much more. 5.5 x 7.7", 576 heavy pages. Satin bookmark, 1000 mono images.
