Male Nudes from "Der Akt"
Max Koch & Otto Rieth 1894-95

These large male nude studies come from an incomplete portfolio of what had been a series of 100 collotypes of Max Koch and Otto Reich's photographs titled "Der Akt" (The Nude). These well-known photographs date from 1894-95, and this rare portfolio of collotypes was most likely produced around the turn of the century. Koch and Reich photographed a series of male and female nudes interacting with architecture. Often they employed mirrors to triplicate the model, creating an illusion of three figures around a single column. Each collotype image is printed on heavy stock. Quality and clarity vary from good to excellent. Each page is 12½X9½-inches; actual image sizes vary. Title, plate number, publisher and photographer credits are listed at the bottom of each.
