Review:

During the 1920s. a time when the United States was, from all appearances, open to artistic experimentation, a Bay Area photographer named Albert Arthur Allen unwittingly took on the Goliath of nudity and politics. An obscure figure who operated outside the margins of the fine art community, Allen was known to a small coterie of clients who bought boudoir studies, pictures of comely young voluptuaries. (In Europe these photographic etudes were an acknowledged integral part of the academic tradition.) A homespun aesthetician who had a marked propensity for self-invention, Allen produced photographic protfolios that were initially inspired by the naturist movement. Today his images, which are typically perceived as high camp, are more familiar than his name.

From the publisher: "With the 1920s came an unprecedented time of new found freedoms, as well as a new species of artist-photographer. Albert Arthur Allen was a San Francisco Bay Area photographer who operated outside the margins of the fine art community by specializing in studies that featured full frontal nudity. His images of women, which epitomize kitsch, are more familiar than his name, regularly appearing on posters and postcards. While the average American woman in the 1920s was adjusting to the new freedoms permitted to her sex and acclimating to fashions that flashed more flesh, such as shorter dresses and lower neck lines, Allens women were nude. They audaciously reveal themselves, engaging the unblinking male gaze with a titillating directness. However, nudity evoked violent sentiments in America and Allen's single minded commitment to his art ultimately ruined him financially and professionally when he was prosecuted as a pornographer, accused of sending obscene materials through the mail. Despite the persecution Allen had endured, he was able to maintain his heroic stance and spent his later years promoting a nudist organization. By the 1930s, decadence had permeated American culture and the fully exposed female nude became acceptable.". Seller Inventory # 100453
