Bare Flesh: Antiquated Nudes (NSFW)


There[s just something about the human body that artists of all styles and practices find beauty on the nude body. How it curves and forms into different shapes allows us to discover more of its mysteries. Artistic nudes have been with us since the dawn of art history, so it is not surprising that since the invention of the camera, there came more opportunities to learn about the body.

We bring you this tiny gallery of vintage nude photographs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

    I remember reading in a photo caption on some photography exhibithion somewhere, that apparantly the Dutch painter George Breitner remarked once that one of the reasons he had bought a camera was that girls were more willing to take of their clothes to pose for a photo - around that time (late 19th century) very modern and fashionable - than for a painting.
