Mappe 1. Der Akt. Eine Sinfonie in Licht und Schatten

Berlin: Oswald Arnold. 1941.

A portfolio of photographs from the Atelier Manasse in Vienna run by Aderjan and Olga von Wlassics. They were the leading photographers of nude and mildly erotic studies in the 1920s and 1930s. Bound in a beige card cover with blue tasselled string. Some slight creasing and scuffing to the cover. The contents are a two page introduction on the beauty of the female body and its influence on artists. Loosely inserted is a facsimile handwritten letter from Aderjan Wlassics. Eleven of the twelve plates are present but they are in immaculate condition.
