Fine Art Print vom Originaldia

WestLicht, Museum for Photography, exhibits the unknown erotic photographs of painter Alfons Walde, about 120 works from the artist’s estate which rested unnoticed in a box for decades. The focus of his photography was on the female nude, the staging of the motifs ranging all the way to pornography. The use of Agfa colour film, then a recent invention, enabled Walde to render realistic scenes photographically, to be used as inspiration for his paintings.

Alfons Walde (1891–1958) is known around the world for his paintings of snowy landscapes and winter sports scenes, highly popular and sought after works that helped shape Tyrol, and especially Kitzbühel, into a fashionable mecca for alpine sports enthusiasts. Little known, on the other hand, is Walde’s passion for photography, which he discovered prior to WWI and which accompanied him throughout his life. This book provides the first ever insight into the artist’s photographic archive, featuring images that focus on the female nude.
