Erotic photo art sadly lost much of its soul when Playboy and its ilk repackaged the female form for top-shelf consumption - Erotic Art Photography redresses that balance with a collection of some of the most exquisite erotic photographs of the past century - Beautifully designed and presented, this volume is a collector's dream From the lens of known and unknown photographers, models whose identities have long since been lost, grace the pages of this unique portfolio. Arranged chronologically, and representing over one hundred years of art, this collection shows how our perception of woman has developed over time and how the erotic dimensions of modesty and immodesty find expression on celluloid. The models have a strikingly natural appeal that dates back to a time before enhancement by either artificial augmentation or airbrushing, making this a true collector's book.

As I was enjoying the book and receiving a refresher course in photographic history, I found it amazing that all the lovely models in the hundreds of images were long since dead and buried. Their individual beauty exists only in the surviving photographs of them at their physical prime and they were indeed beautiful. The collection includes some pleasant surprises such as the only known nude torso picture of actress Sarah Bernhardt and several pictures of Josephine Baker. This books is compiled from the author's own extensive collection of erotic B&W and hand colored photographs. He deliberately didn't include previously published images from well-known and famous photographers (Brassai, Kertesz, Krull or Man Ray) preferring to expose largely unknown images to the public. There aren't any pornographic images in this volume. There are situations which hint at lesbian and S&M relationships, but that is mostly in the mind of the viewer. The few men included in the book are usually dressed and serve only as props, no pun intended. And there are some works of the mysterious Mr. X included. He and his friends are shown in a few of the examples of the thousands of pictures he took. The book does contain many examples of humor, most of it intended, but some accidental. Once the reader has read the book he will understand the reference to men as props. This is an excellent book for so many reasons most of which haven't been mentioned in this review, but will be obvious to the viewer of the volume.
After reading this book the reader will realize that one of the sad results of World War II on France was that it brought to an end the dominance of French nude photography and France's dominance of any of the photography or cinematic art forms. It was the French bureaucrats and censors ultimate revenge on the freedom of the arts. And that result was truly unfortunate. If the viewer of this book reads French they will receive extra satisfaction from being able to understand the French captions printed on many of the actual postcards, business/visiting cards and photographs. This is a beautiful and lovingly done art book. The author's passion for the subject is obvious and that enthusiasm permeates every word and image included in the book. This is book is a very nostalgic trip back in time.
Now, do not misunderstand me, it is absolutely beautiful, showing you the artistic nude photography through the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Both my wife and I enjoyed it tremendously. Nudes as old as 1850s, a wonderful collection.
It's important to stress that this is not just another presentation of the same images featured in so many other books of vintage erotica - most are rare pieces never before published in book form. It's a spectacular ride. And the production quality is almost up to par with the immaculate contents. It's a huge, superbly crafted book, 12x11" in size, and 256 pages.
The history and insights provided by Dupouy in the preface as well as in each of the six sections of the book is not only an erudite and informative study, it is also an obvious conduit for Dupouy's love for the medium. These photos are a precious treasure to him and he shares not only his knowledge here, but his love and enthusiasm as well.
