5 3/8" x 3 ½" gelatin silver print, 1925, by the great Czechoslovakian photographer Frantisek Drtikol. There is a purple stamp in Czech on the verso, and the number "90" appears in the negative. This well exemplifies the photographer's presentation of slender art-deco influenced female nudes in a rhythmic and often abstract composition. A rich print with no damage or any flaws. Here is something from the Wickipedia entry: From 1907 to 1910 he had his own studio, until 1935 he operated an important portrait photostudio in Prague on the fourth floor of one of Prague's remarkable buildings, a Baroque corner house at 9 Vodičkova, now demolished. Drtikol made many portraits of very important people and nudes which show development from pictorialism and symbolism to modern composite pictures of the nude body with geometric decorations and thrown shadows, where it is possible to find a number of parallels with the avant-garde works of the period. There are reminiscent of Cubism and at the same time his nudes suggest the kind of movement that was characteristic of the futurism aesthetic.
