Victorian Nude Photography Collection

Pictures of nude women prior to 1835 generally consisted of paintings and drawings which  were displayed in all respectability on the walls of art galleries and in country houses.

When the new technology of photography appeared around 1835 it was quickly taken up by artists, eager for new ways to illustrate the undraped feminine form.In the moral climate of the 19th century the only officially sanctioned photography of the body was for the production of artist’s studies.
