    Regular Price: $65.00

    Sale Price $24.95

    The first sustained examination of these ground-breaking studies of the nude figure in motion and the remarkable success of their production, wide circulation, and reception. Muybridge’s nudes ushered in new attitudes toward science and progress, including Darwinian ideas about human evolution and hierarchy; debates over the role of photography and scientific investigation in art; and offered innovative perspectives on the human body. This fascinating story is copiously illustrated, and includes many lesser-known photographs published here for the first time. Learn More

  4. E.M. LILIEN ILLUSTRATIONS FOR THE BIBLE 2019 Calendar

    Regular Price: $19.95

    Sale Price $5.99

    A devoted art fan in the Bay Area has this year produced four fine, very high quality calendars featuring vintage artwork. Each is spiral bound, printed on very heavy stock, oversized, and enclosed in a handsome clear-view sleeve. This one features 12 fine black and white plates from Die Bucher Der Bibel, 1923, published in Berlin. I have a copy of his 1923 book Lieder des Ghetto in my collection, and have always enjoyed Lilien's work. His classical style reminds me of Charles Robinson and his brother Thomas Heath Robinson, circa 1890-1920. Learn More
