A new exhibition and a new book, this was the opportunity for Nicole Canet to send us this text:
“This new exhibition cum sale in my Gallery “Au Bonheur du Jour” invites you to discover the universe of male subjects and mainly nudes, an abundant and varied iconography, put back into its historical context.
Old photographs from the middle of the 19th century, beginning of the 20th century, until the 1990s, by famous photographers to “spicy” amateur images.
Fragile male bodies rub shoulders with powerful muscles on various themes: masters of academicism, photographs intended for the School of Fine Arts: Gaudenzio Marconi, J.L. Igout, following the aesthetics of the 1930s: Bruno Wiehr , Kurt Reichert, up to the famous American and English photographers, to arrive at the most modern and rare images of Konrad Helbig, Jean Daniel Cadinot, Joseph Caprio, Yves Paradis and others.”
