Nineteen thirties Venus: Preparations for the ball




We always find that those pictures from a time when being photographed nude was considered very risque indeed, have a particular frisson.  We respond to this one because of its everyday nature and the 'inadvertant' nature of the display.  A young lady is putting on her knickers in preparation for going out to a dance.  The blurring of her underwear just adds to its immediacy.

It is a French photograph from 1932.  Delicieuse!
