Description

Heinz von Perckhammer: The Culture of the Nude in China. Berlin: Eigenbrödler-Verlag 1928. 4to. Illust. with 32 photogravures. Orig. illustrated wrappers.

The German photographer Perckhammer traveled to Southern China and Macao in the late 1920s where he photographed women from the Macao brothels. The soft nudes photographs were the antithesis of the women's real surroundings. After he returned to Germany, he published some of these studies in the French magazine, Voila (No.76, 1932). He also published “Edle nacktheit in China” in 1928. Perckhammer was known for his fine nudes, his portrait studies and publicity stills.

Rare in fine condition.
