In 1961 Bill Brandt published one of his most important books, Perspective of Nudes and from that point on his nudes became amongst his most famous and acclaimed works.
One starting point is provided by one of Brandt's most extraordinary early pictures, a close-up crop of his famous scene of a bedroom in Soho, which reduces the forms of an embracing man and woman into an abstraction that is transformed into a sensual masterpiece about contact and congress as the forms merge into one and the foregrounded hand emphasises the tactile. The photograph anticipates the voluptuous fragmentation of the body parts of Brandt's later nudes, in which the setting is also removed to concentrate attention on the human form."
Good - Very Good / Dust jacket shows evident signs of wear and staining, but is now in a transparent archival cover. Hardcover itself in good condition. Inside in stellar condition with hardly any signs to the stunning heliogravure printing.
