Alma-Tademaesque Venuses

Agent Triple P was trying to clear some stuff from the loft today and came across this fine picture in one of his cuttings boxes.  The pictorial feature from which this comes was, we think, from Vogue sometime in the eighties and was punningly entitled Heavenly Being by the Sea.  The barely concealed nymphets were photographed by Alex Chatelain in the manner of an Alma Tadema painting; all blue sea, distant mountains and floaty white garments.  


  1. Being spanish, i have thought of Sorolla.

  2. Thanks for that! Yes I can see what you mean!

  3. They look like twins. Can it be a composite of two images of one girl?

  4. I'm not sure. Photo manipulation wasn't as common or as easy then. I don't have the rest of the pictorial any more but I seem to recall there were two different girls...

    They do look similar, though.
