Études de Nu.

Paris: Librairie des Arts Décoratif, 1930. First Edition. Large octavo. Cloth-backed portfolio, featuring 24 arresting photo-engraved plates. Two years after her modernist masterpiece Métal, Krull changes gears with this sensual, painterly interpretation of the female nude, featuring sapphic undertones reminiscent of her earlier photography from late-1920s Berlin. Introduced by a poetically-printed version of Krull's manifesto on photography as métier, printed to a loose gathering of text. (Parr / Badger, v1, 78). Minimal foxing to edges of some plates (8.75 x 6.25 in., sheet), but otherwise an exemplary copy in the original portfolio, with cloth ties; close to fine. Printed label to front panel shows marginal foxing, with a contemporary ownership inscription (1931). Housed in a custom cloth clamshell case, with leather lettering piece to spine.
