Nearly a century ago, photography and sensuality.

Let’s speak about a series of «images» having «become Art Deco postcards» and able to tell something interesting about the years from «1915 to 1930».

It is about «photos which exalted women’s body» and showed their «soft» forms. This kind of pictures represented «one of the first signs of the change and of the use of the nude in photography», a «research of the eroticism» for a wide circulation.

These high-class photos were considered ‘racy’ at the time, but they enjoyed a considerable popularity «in the parlours».

The gallery proposed by la Repubblica.it gathers «a part of the historical collection of the Getty Images catalogue» (la Repubblica.it).
