Catalogue Note

The only existing print of this variant from Hajek-Halke's impressive Black and White Nudes series. This experimental group of photographs, made between 1930 and 1936, is the most condensed and famous of Hajek-Halke's work. The photographer used the same negatives in different ways to create variants of this sculptural female body resulting in abstract and expressive images.
